More Developer Control over tab order in Storyline
I work as a Senior eLearning Specialist/Developer/ID in Canada. My clients are primarily financial institutions and government agencies. Several of them have tried or are looking at Storyline and will consider using it as their prime development tool but..... They have all come across the same issue when testing ( as have I when building accessible courses).
The Tab Order does not function correctly and needs to be redesigned to that the developer has a greater degree of control over the order in which items on the screen will tab. I have read the previous posts on the subject and I am not the only developer who has come across this issue. Having control over the tab order is of prime consideration when developing a course that has to meet accessibility standards. And yes, I know Storyline meets Section 508 standards ( in that content is accessible via the keyboard). But, not being able to control the order in which the accessible learner can actually "read" the control makes it useless as a development tool (for accessible content).
Having said that, all that is needed is a tool/method/process, that the learning developer can access to properly set tab order. Please don't take this post as demeaning the product. I love Articulate Storyline. What I need to know is when or if Articulate will address this issue?
I am being asking by corporate and government clients if they should or should not use Storyline. They too are concerned over this issue. I need to be able to respond to their questions, in some manner. Can you provide any sort of details on whether or not this issue will or will not be resolved in the next update?
