How to “not” automatically go fullscreen with HTML5 on Android browsers
This is not regarding the Articulate Mobile Player, but rather the HTML5 browser output/presentation. On all my android tablets, viewing a SL 2 (Updated 10) test results in the browser going fullscreen. The experience is typically this:
1. I see the standard SL preloader.
2. A large, round play button appears, requiring a tap to begin viewing the HTML5 content.
3. I tap the play button and the browser immediately goes full screen and shows a notification along the top, “Drag from top and touch the back button to exit full screen.” or “This site has gone fullscreen. Drag from top to exit.”
So yes, a user could exit full screen, and it’s certainly nice that they’ve automatically gotten the larger screen benefit of going full screen (most aren’t gonna complain here!). But I like having control and options over projects I work on.
FWIW, one of the UX scenarios I’m thinking of is when a SL has various PDFs that the user can open (in other browser tabs). Once they do that, they exit full screen and another tab opens…and the user is now out of full screen for good. I like the idea of preventing that kind of UX shift and staying in “not” full screen the entire time if that’s the experience I want to maintain.
Another scenario is that keep the browser tab awareness in check for users for cases where they intend on switching between tabs frequently.
A feature request maybe, unless I missed where this can be controlled.
