Hi everyone,

Thank you all for continuing to share the crucial need for creating accessible content for all learners. While more work remains, we're at a point where we're confident the job done so far delivers meaningful real-world improvements for learners with accessibility needs.

I've included links below where you can find all the details on what this means for Storyline 360 Update 36:

You'll also see our general FAQ on accessibility in Articulate 360 tools here.

This release makes it significantly easier for those users to perceive, operate, and understand content published with Storyline, while opening up more choices of the browser, assistive technology, and devices for the first time. Learners will benefit from the vast majority of these improvements, even when the course author is not designing their course for accessibility. 

If you have any questions or concerns, let us know here or reach out to our Support team. We know there is more to do, so we'll continue to keep you posted about future releases.

Bob,

I have found that this is a function of increasing the resolution up from the default 720 x 405, which makes items on the player small, so I increased the Player font size (see attached) to 150% and that is what sent the button off the bottom, because the enclosing dialog box does not scale  appropriately with the higher resolution.

By taking the player font size down to 120% the result is acceptable, although not all the best. Also, taking the resolution down closer to the default also helps.

I don't know if this is your situation, but it was my work around.

Thank you John. That's great information. 

Just a side comment: It's unfortunate that 720 by 405 pixels is considered default. That low a resolution doesn't allow images to scale up well for people with large monitors. 

If anyone at Articulate is monitoring this conversation, I vote for enhancing user control over the size, look and feel of the popup dialog boxes in the Player Text Labels panel. At the very least, they shouldn't allow the OK button to overflow the dialog box.
