Screen Reader Not Reading Anything

Mar 19, 2015


I'm building a course that needs to be 508 compliant. I've tried two different screen readers, and they are not reading the onscreen text of my published courses.

I've adjusted the Alt Text for some items and still nothing. Any suggestions?

Hi Cheryl,

First off, are you testing your published content within the intended environment? Testing it locally could cause you to encounter security restrictions. 

Next, what screen readers have you tried? For example I believe JAWS is only supported using the latest version of Internet Explorer (per JAWS requirements) and that you need to start JAWS before opening the course. 

If you're still having difficulty please let us know a bit more information about your set up and testing.
