Details on new (Storyline 2 update 5) screen reader functionality please.
Hi, in the absence of a screen reader to test it on myself, can you please provide more details as to what will be read using the new Storyline 2 update 5 functionality?
The support article says: "To add alternate text for screen readers, simply enter text in the Alternate Text column on the right side of the tab order window.... If an object doesn’t have alternate text, screen readers will read the name of that object as it appears in the timeline."
What is the specific screen reader functionality for text and title boxes? What happens when you add alt text to a text box? In the tab order customization window, under Shape, for each object in my tab order, it lists the title of the slide + the name of the object in the timeline + the content of the text box itself. Is this what I can expect to be read to the screen reader? I don't want it to read the full title of the slide in front of every piece of text.
If I use alt text on a text box, such as to indicate that it is an item in a list (required for WCAG), will the alternate text "list" override the contents of the actual textbox, or just precede it, overriding the timeline name "textbox 1"?
