Accessibility: JAWS reader doesn't recognize new slide
Oct 22, 2015
We have tried several screen readers including JAWS, and we are unable to get Articulate to communicate with the screen reader that a new slide is ready to be read. The problem with this is that my peers who are blind don't know when they need to hit tab again in order for JAWS to read the new text boxes on the new slide. We had some courses that were required by law to publish quickly, so I created a work around by adding a ding to each page and asking my blind peers to tab through each page every time they heard a ding. However, this isn't the experience they have on webpages. JAWS recognizes (refreshes) every time something new is presented on a webpage, so it is an adjustment for the blind user when Storyline doesn't do this.
Does anyone have any ideas for this other than including an audio indicator (ding) as we did on our courses?
