Standard text boxes are not being highlighted and read in my screen reader
Feb 27, 2020
I have just updated Storyline. I am on v3.37.2453.0 and the text boxes I add to a page are not being highlighted in yellow in my screen reader or being read out. They are listed in the tab order, but the yellow highlight lines that normally select them are not showing.
This is occurring when I preview the file. I am also publishing to Chrome on Windows as a test, and this does not work either. On the latest chrome. Only installed it 5 hours ago:)
What has changed in the past couple of months to make this happen? In the past I would not add any alt text to text boxes (in the tab order screen) because the text box content was read out without doing anything special, even when using a basic reader like MS Narrator.
Any help appreciated. See attachment - the second textbox in the list is how StoryLine typically works- no need for alt text. Nothing was highlighted or read out. The first item shows how I tried to add the same text into Alt text, but even that does not highlight or read out.
