Using alt text & focus order
Nov 02, 2021
I'm trying to refine a system for accessibility in my team, but I guess that the Focus Order (née 'Tab Order') functions differently than the last time I used it. I couldn't figure out why I could not highlight text in Preview after sorting the order. I eventually found an article which mentioned that accessing Alt Text & accessing interactive elements in Storyline are controlled separately, though unfortunately I did not have the foresight to bookmark it & now I don't recall exactly what it said.
Does anyone have any suggestions about checking Alt Text in SL preview or 360 Review? i can check buttons & anything with triggers, but I'd like to make sure that AT works the way I'm setting it up. Would I have to convince my work to invest in a trial of JAWS or something? I tried using a Google Add-On & a Windows Narrator, but neither worked well. At this point, all I'm really trying to do is ensure that I can actually highlight the elements with Alt Text, but since they're no longer controlled by the 'Tab' key, I don't know how to test these.
Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
