JAWS reads 'Graphics' at the end of each alt text

Hello,

I am using Storyline 3 and JAWS 17. 

JAWS reads 'Graphics' at the end of each alt text.

It is pretty annoying when there are multiple objects on your slide and it reads Graphics for every object.

Also, I have added CC a the bottom of the slide and JAWS doesn't read the text added in CC. 

Please refer to the attached training.

Thanks,

Girish.

Hi Girish! 

Great question, and we've got an article on that very topic! It's tagged for Storyline 2, but the same goes for Storyline 3. 

As for JAWS reading closed captions, JAWS is for visually impaired learners, and closed captions are for audio impaired learners. If JAWS read the closed captions, it would read the same thing as the audio or video on your slide. 

I hope that clears things up!
