Screen Reader Can't read "Invalid Answer" message
Sep 16, 2019
Hi there, I have a course with multiple choice questions in it. I thought I had made everything accessible until I tried navigating the course using only NVDA (screen reader). My "correct" and "incorrect" layers work perfectly; but if the user clicks the 'Submit' button, the system-generated pop up displays and it is impossible to tab to the message. The only thing that is accessible is the "OK" button. So if I get this message, I have to tab around to reach the "OK" button, and if I am not sighted, I don't even know why I got the message.
I found a work-around video on how to create your own custom invalid answer slide. I was so excited! But when I test it, the audio on the slide (which is necessary for the unsighted learner to hear) plays when the user returns to the question and selects either a correct or incorrect answer.
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? Here is what I've tried:
- Adding a "start media when timeline begins" trigger on both the 'correct' and 'incorrect' slides
- Adding a "stop media when timeline ends" trigger on the 'invalid answer slide
- Changing the feedback master - I realized that I had duplicated the 'Correct' quiz layout when I created my 'Invalid Answer' Layer and I thought that might be the problem. I completely re-did the feedback master, applied the new layout...and had the same problem
I've attached a short Story project of just a couple of the slides so you can see. If you test it, be sure to click it a couple of different ways. For me, the slide didn't work when I selected the correct answer (2nd bullet). The invalid answer message plays over the correct one.
Thanks, I look forward to hearing from folks!
