Modern Player Accessibility Issues with Color

It appears one cannot change or manage the color of most text and controls in the modern player other than the Accent Color. Is that true?

Upon testing the default colors for both the Dark and Light Player Themes so our department can use the Modern Player in our course designs, I find that neither player meets WCAG 2.0 A, or AA criteria 1.4.1 and 1.4.11 though the player icons do meet the criteria.

Is there some way we can at least modify the text colors in the modern player, to apply some accessibility compliance?

Hello Nicole, and thanks for following up!

We just released Storyline 360 Update 52, and in it, you’ll find a fix for the bug you encountered where:

When using a Lightbox trigger to display an Engage 360 interaction, enabling the “Use Navigation Controls” option will cause the Lightbox to freeze when displaying the Engage interaction on the 2nd visit.

From here, I’d recommend updating to this latest version to see if that helps:  install the latest Storyline 360 version here. If this happens again, please feel free to work directly with our support engineers here so they can help troubleshoot!
