quotation mark " text entry SL2 html5 problem


well, the title says it: quotation mark " text entry SL2 html5 problem.

My text entry doesn't work in html5. It shows the incorrect option.

 It works fine in html an in the SL player. I think the problem may be the use of "quotation marks". Any thoughts, experiences on this.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hello Tjalling,

If you use fill-in-the-blank or text-entry questions with answers that require apostrophes, you may find that the questions are always marked incorrect—even when learners correctly enter answers with apostrophes.

This is a known issue. It'll be fixed in a forthcoming software update for Articulate Storyline. Enable theCheck for updates at startup feature to be notified when new updates are available.

Hello Emily,

thanks for your answer. We have now found that the problem is not the use of quotation  marks, but the use of the backslash. Removing the backslash solves the problem.

But since it is a course on programming language we would really like to be able to use the backslash. So I'm hoping this will be fixed as well.
