Alt-Text/Screen Reader Issues
I'm running into some super weird issues with Storyline 360 and updating an existing course.
I've got an existing course (ironically on accessibility from 2012). The published one from 2017 (in 360) works exactly as planned. https://youtu.be/I6fviESxc9Y
Now, when I publish it today, each of the oval buttons is only read as "oval 6". Absolutely nothing changed on the slide (i.e., all Alt tags remain the same). In the timeline the ovals have been renamed according to their respective years. I can only assume they all read Oval 6 because I copied and pasted the first one - I have no idea it was so long ago. The weirder part is when I insert a new oval, add the same alt text and trigger (show layer) it works just fine. It's a matter of existing tags going wonky. https://youtu.be/BDF9lgcETcU
Another oddity, when you select the oval the alt text gets read. So, you tab to it and the screen reader reads "oval 6". Hit the spacebar and it reads the correct alt text.
The videos are recorded using the MAC OS built-in screen reader in Chrome and Safari. I've tested them in Windows, JAWS, Edge with the same result.
I've updated Storyline to the latest update.
I've tested it on my MacBook pro with Windows 10/Parallels.
A hackintosh, Windows 7/Parallels.
And pure Windows 10 desktop. That's publishing and viewing from all three.
I've tried importing just the slide into a new project, no better.
My main client requires everything to be accessible to it would a huge pain in the ass if they ever come back for updates. Anyone experiencing this?
