Storyline Accessibility (WCAG / Section 508 compliance) Resources For You to Download / Share
I've felt that there is a real lack of resources and examples - from Storyline, and online in general - to help designers and developers create accessible e-learning courses. I created the attached guide for the benefit of my City of Calgary colleagues and I would like to share it with you here.
Storyline does have a recently published accessibility e-book. It is a good resource, and I don't claim that my own guide is completely comprehensive either, but I hope that between the two of them, and your own research, you'll be able to get the information you need to design courses that are compliant with WCAG 2.0 and Section 508.
I've also created a YouTube video https://youtu.be/WFgF3mVK694 with an explanation of accessible design and screen recordings of how the JAWS screen reader reads certain Storyline-created course elements.
Both the guide and the video are accurate up to Storyline 2: Update 5, JAWS 16 and Internet Explorer 11. As all of these tools develop and change, they may behave differently than shown in my resources.
