Can Alt Text and Screenreaders work with Scenario Blocks in Rise 360

Aug 15, 2023

I just attended the webinar 'Working with Scenario Blocks in Rise 360', which was excellent and very informative!  I would like to know if screen readers can work with the scenario blocks or if it's possible to add alt text to describe the image as well as the questions in the scenario, choices, feedback, etc.  I really like how these are readily available to create in Rise using the same characters and backgrounds as Storyline so if these blocks in Rise can be made accessible for visually impaired learners that would be wonderful.  Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided.

Hi Dana!

I understand that you would like to know if screen readers can work with scenario blocks. Scenario blocks don’t currently support alt text.

More information about this  can be found in our VPAT, under Table 1: Success Criteria, Level A (1.1.1 Non-text Content)

This article has in-depth details about what we've been doing to improve accessibility in Rise 360.

Hope this helps!
