JAWS - how to export screen text for accessiblity document?

I'm not sure if my client's process is different than others because I'm totally new to JAWS, but I'm currently working on a project with a specific process for JAWS.

We publish into a Word document and use that output to generate a text file for JAWS. (That final process is done by someone else, so I'm not clear on what exactly they do!)

As the ID, I have to prepare/clean up the text file. Storyline does not export text/items on the screen to the Word document, other than the Notes we have manually inserted there.

Am I missing something? Is there a way to automatically export the screen items to a Word doc to use with a screen reader?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Denise!  If you need a word document of your Storyline text in editable format, try exporting your course for translation

Also, I wanted to mention that Storyline content is accessible for JAWS screen readers, in case that will save you some work!  Here are the requirements for Storyline 360:

  • HTML5: JAWS 16 or later with Internet Explorer 10 or later, Google Chrome (latest version), Firefox (latest version)
  • Flash: JAWS 16 or later with Internet Explorer 11
