Can I create an "accessible" image-based menu in Storyline?
Mar 18, 2015
I'd like to create an interactive menu from a single image. The image is a graphic of a process, and I'd like to use it as the central menu from which users will navigate the course. I believe this approach is called an image map.
I read that hotspots in Storyline don't meet accessibility requirements such as Section 508. Is there another way to approach this? Note that my graphic doesn't cut nicely into squares that could perhaps be fit together as separate images that are placed to look like a single image.
Would slicing in Photoshop be an option? The accessibility requirement is that each segment of the image be titled with an Alt tag and that the user be able to tab through the menu, with the Alt tag read to the screen reader.
I've attached a sketch of the menu image I'd like to use.
