Hyperlinks are not included in the tab order (unless made into buttons).
Dec 02, 2020
It seems that hyperlinks are not included in the tab order unless they are turned into buttons. Which for links within a sentence, this is not ideal.
Reading from this link: https://articulate.com/support/article/Storyline-360-Accessible-Slide-Content
It says this:
'Learners who use keyboard-only navigation without a screen reader for mobility reasons press Tab and Shift+Tab to move from one interactive object to another on the slide. Press the spacebar or the Enter key to activate an item.
Since keyboard-only users can see text and images, these objects get skipped when tabbing through the slide content. This reduces the number of keystrokes needed to navigate the slide.'
However, hyperlinks that are within the text should be included in the Tab order, as how would a person who only uses a keyboard access the links if they are skipped? As far as I can tell, they can't.
Am I missing something, or do hyperlinks have to be turned into buttons to be included in the Tab order?
Thanks in advance.
