Navigation triggers using JAWS screen reader
In an attempt to make a course 508 compliant with no keyboard traps I set up some basic triggers in my Storyline file:
Move to next slide when user clicks the right arrow key for example.
This seems to work well outside of using JAWS but I've found when I open JAWS to read the screen, its own keyboard commands take over such that if I hit the right arrow key, the screen reader will read the next letter in the narration rather than moving to the next slide.
I did some research and found specific keyboard commands for JAWS and in the example above, clicking ALT + Right arrow should allow you to move forward to the next slide. No problem I thought, I'll just change the trigger to accept that command.
Unfortunitly the keyboard command programed in Storyline seems to be overridden by the keyboard command with JAWS. Does anyone know how to marry the two together so that if I use the ALT + right arrow command as a trigger is Storyline, it will actually move the to the next slide? Currently the screen reader says "forward" out loud, but the slides do not advance. I could be missing something simple, I hope...
