Flip card interaction, accessibility question


We would like to use the flip card interaction in a Rise course, but I have a question about accessibility.

If I am using keyboard navigation, and a screen reader, I can navigate to the card and flip it just fine. The problem is that the screen reader doesn't read the text on a card unless I mouse over it. For someone who cannot see the screen, or use a mouse, the information would be lost.

Do you have any suggestions? 

Thank you.

Hi all, we may have found a workaround for this issue during accessibility testing of our modules. 

NVDA reads the front of the card, then press Ctrl+tab to go back up, tab back to flip the card, and the screenreader will recognise the text. Multiple team members tested this on different browsers and it worked. It's fiddly and unintuitive for sure.
