Alt Text problems

Hello everyone,

I built a quiz template using Storyline 3, and I need to ensure it's accessible to screen readers. I tested the course, and although I added alt text to all images, it's the image name (file name) that screen readers read out instead. I've tested with NVDA and Mac's VoiceOver, and both read out file names. 

I changed alt text, as well as tab order, and technically the readers should pick up the newly identified descriptions. But they don't. 

You can preview the quiz template here. The problematic slide - Slide 2.
.story file attached below. 

Will look forward to your ideas.

I think I solved this problem, and am posting it here, so that others can benefit. An answer was presented in Kuriko A.'s post, which mentioned the need to update alt text of button states. This advice prompted me to think about the states of my images, which I did not consider adding alt text to. 

State alt text - notice the alternate text is the file name of the image - I updated alt text on all states:

This change has resulted in screen reader reading out appropriate alt text tags. 

FYI, and thank you Kuriko A.
