Storyline 2, screen readers & accessibility
Aug 09, 2016
I am currently redeveloping one of our self-directed courses using Storyline 2, and have started testing for accessibility (AODA compliance), using Mac screen reader - VoiceOver.
Here's how I prepped the various assets to be recognized by the screen reader:
- left the default "object is available to accessibility tools" checked
- added alternate text tags using the Size and Position menu
- customized tags using Tab Order window (see taborder.png)
I have tested the .story.html output on three browsers: Chrome, Firefox and Safari, and neither picks up the tags added to the content. I can clearly see the yellow accessibility boxes around content I added tags to, however the tags themselves are not recognized (see aodatesting1(2).png). This is problematic.
Here's a live course demo.
Any insight on how I can make the tags readable would be helpful.
