Tabbing to hyperlinks within a textbox (accessibility) not working - Storyline 360
Feb 05, 2018
I am unable to use the keyboard to access a hyperlink within a textbox. I saw in this post that this was an issue with Storyline 2. Has anything been done with Storyline 360 to fix this issue? If not I would like to use one of the work-arounds suggested on that post (creating an 'invisible' button that the user can tab to and activate the link), however, when using a screen reader like JAWS, when you tab to the textbox containing a link, it does not say anything about the link being present, but at the end of the paragraph it says the phrase "use the spacebar to activate". I assume this is because there is a link in the textbox, but hitting the spacebar does not activate the link. This is very confusing for the user. I have attached one of my slides with this issue below (I changed the link as it is supposed to be linking to our intranet).
