Jaws is reading the scrub bar timeline numbers when you try to play the timeline. Is that normal?

Apr 22, 2020

During a test with Jaws and a non sighted learner, when you tab to the play button to start the paused audio, Jaws is reading the scrub bar timeline as the audio plays.

Hi Todd,

Thanks for reaching out and sharing that helpful video of the issue you're seeing. I'm really sorry you're running into this bug, as we've been able to replicate and have reported it to our team.

Bug: The screen reader constantly announces time stamps when the focus is on the seekbar.

Hello all!

I appreciate you taking the time to report this issue to us! I'm excited to share that the fix for this bug was released today in Storyline 360 (Build 3.51.24979.0). 

Fixed: Screen readers constantly announced timestamps when the seekbar had focus. Now, screen readers announce the elapsed percentage one time when the seekbar gains focus—e.g., 10%. When learners activate the seekbar by pressing Enter or spacebar, screen readers announce the elapsed percentage as it changes—e.g., 10%, 11%, 12%, and so on.

You'll find this bug fix included with other fixes and features in our latest version of Storyline 360.  To take advantage of these enhancements, make sure to update Storyline 360 on your Articulate 360 desktop app!

Our team is available in this discussion or a support case if you have additional questions!
