JAWS Reader Question

Jul 19, 2013

I am working on a course that has to be accessible with JAWS - I got some feedback that says JAWS says the word "Graphic" before reading on screen text and that it reads the screen frames overtop of the recorded audio.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening?

My company is developing a course for a major corporation on accessibility to showcase best practices. We were assuming it would be possible to use Storyline to produce our course, however we are running into the above mentioned issue which is a showstopper for us. Articulate makes a big show of being 508 compliant - http://www.articulate.com/support/storyline/storyline-is-508-compliant. The very first item on the list of compliance is Jaws, and for every text box it reads, it says "graphic" out loud.

I think it is pretty disingenuous to call Storyline 508 compliant with this kind of bug in it. Please provide a fix or a workaround. You're selling your vision impaired audience short.
