I've been testing some Storyline courses we've developed using JAWS screen reader (version 15.0.625) and have noticed a few things:
- Sometimes, even when 'Alt text' has been switched off for an object on a slide, you can still tab to it (the yellow box still highlights around the object even when Alt text has been disabled).
- I can get into the Resources tab (by pressing spacebar), but it's a bit hit and miss as to whether I can actually get into the list itself using the up and down arrows. The resources title seems to be skipped completely and isn't read out when tabbing in JAWS. Also, JAWS won't read out the items in the Resources list, so a visually impaired user would have no way of knowing what they're scrolling through.
- Sometimes the tab function picks up a 'ghost' item that simply doesn't exist at all.
- Sometimes when a slide loads, JAWS reads out the title (or first object on screen) automatically without tabbing to it. When this happens and you then tab to the title itself, JAWS doesn't read anything out at all.
Just wondering whether these are known issues/bugs, or whether it's something to do with the way in which we've created the courses themselves.
If they're known issues, are there any plans in the pipeline to address them with future Storyline updates?
Any guidance would be gratefully recieved as we're designing for an audience of 100,000+ people and accessibility is a must.
