Hi Alfred,

Storyline 360 supports Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Keyboard navigation is supported in graded and survey question types. 

However, the following drag-and-drop and hotspot interactions require a mouse for navigation, making them difficult or impossible to use for mobility-impaired learners. If you add them to your course, provide text-based or keyboard-controlled alternatives.

Form-Based Interactions:

  • Matching drag-and-drop
  • Sequence drag-and-drop
  • Ranking drag-and-drop
  • Word bank/which word
  • Hotspot

Freeform Interactions:

  • Drag-and-drop
  • Hotspot

Here are a few examples of alternatives:

  • Rather than a matching drag-and-drop interaction, consider using a matching drop-down interaction instead since it’s keyboard-accessible.
  • You could add a link that opens a layer with a text-based alternative for a freeform drag-and-drop interaction.
  • You might let learners choose a slider alternative for a hotspot interaction, since sliders respond to the arrow keys on your keyboard.

We also recommend that you provide on-screen instructions when learners need to type information into a text-entry field so they know what’s expected of them.
