Audio Descriptions in Storyline 360 for Visually Impaired

Hello heroes!

I have a client that is needing the videos and animations in our training to include audio descriptions for Section 508 compliance.

All of our videos have option captions burned into them, but I am struggling to find a way to add audio descriptions to the videos. I can see where to add alt text in Storyline 360, but I need a way to have the videos play with audio descriptions similar to this: https://youtu.be/7-XOHN2BWG4

Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure where to go from here in Storyline.

Thank you!

Hi Andrea,

Thanks for sharing that example. Have you looked into the Text-to-Speech feature, or adding audio overlays in Storyline for your video?

Storyline 360 can't read the caption content from an inserted .mp4, so there's not a feature that will automatically pull the text and align it for you to add audio descriptions.
