What a screen reader is reading following upgrade
There have been many discussions about the new upgrade and AT compliance. Rather than this get lost, I am starting a new post. I have taken a slide and recorded what is being read by JAWS. Please listen to the audio files alongside the screen shot.
The first audio file is me navigating through, using the down arrow key (after the slide title was read several times).
The second audio file is playing by itself with no navigation at all.
In the player settings, the title is blank and left hidden. Slides are named as usual. Tab order seems correct.
1. Why does the slide title get read out so many times?
2. Is there a way to get it to read the bullets properly? Usually, on a webpage, it will say, "Bullet list with 5 items," or something like that and then you can navigate through each item. Storyline doesn't seem to recognise the bullets so it doesn't announce them and it doesn't pause in the right places. For this example, I have put a comma in white text after each bullet point.
3. Why does the audio randomly stop in the middle of a sentence? This happens on all slides when using the arrow keys to navigate. It doesn't happen if you just leave it to play through, but then you can't use any buttons.
4. I can see when there is a button coming because I designed it and have vision. How would a blind person, navigating this for the first time, know when to suddenly switch between arrows and tab? You can access buttons with the arrow keys and space but it doesn't tell you you can until after you've done it.
Sorry for the long post but I wanted to explain some of the issues well enough for you to understand.
