Course audio and screen readers
Jan 13, 2020
Hi all, I'm building a 508 accessible course, and some of our course participants will be using a screen reader, such as JAWS. I want to add course audio for those who just want to be able to listen as well as read the course, but for those using a screen reader, the course would play my sound AND their screen reader would read the alt-text, which would be bad.
Does anyone have a suggestion for the most efficient way to set this up? I'd like to be able to have course audio muted upon entry, and then the participants could click a button to allow the audio to play on all slides if they like. I don't see that this is possible with the standard controls, but perhaps with some custom HTML?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
