Tabbing through shuffled multiple choice answers

I created a quiz that shuffles the order of the answer options in a multiple choice question. Users are able to use the Tab key to navigate through each question slide. However,  the order in which they move from answer to answer also appears to be shuffled from their perspective. It seems that the keyboard navigation is reading the original, non-shuffled entry of the answers and applying that to the tab order. The individual answers do not appear in the custom tab order list; the entire multiple choice text box appears as one shape. Is there a workaround for this?

Hi, Steve. Thanks for sharing your file!

To start, I hosted the LMS zipped package to SCORM Cloud for testing–here's the hosted output

Does this short recording capture the behavior you see on your end? Also, would you be able to attach the source .story file here so we can take a thorough look at the tab order settings?

Let me know, and we'll work on our next steps!

Thank you for sharing the bones with me, Steve. Super helpful to see!

It looks like you've run into an open issue we're currently investigating: When answer choices are shuffled/random, the tab order is also randomized rather than going from the top answer to the bottom answer.

So sorry for the trouble! I'm tagging this discussion to our report so I can circle back with any workarounds and changes in this bug’s status!
