Making a scroll bar keyboard accessible

Oct 23, 2014

Hello,

I am working to make an online training developed in Articulate Storyline keyboard-accessible. I can't seem to figure out how to make a layer with a scroll bar keyboard accessible, so that users can read all the text. Is there a way to do this or do I have to set up a work-around? 

Thanks!

Ana

Lauren, besides keyboard controlled scrolling, I have a question about a scrolling panel's content being accessible. For example, I assume an image might not be for non-sighted learners, but would a text box or shape with text be read with a screen reader for them? If so, I assume the entire box regardless of just where the scroll position is. Hope this is clear :)
