Are Rise courses compatible with JAWS reader?
Welcome to the community, Claire!
Great question 🌟Our ultimate goal is to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), in which we're currently working on full-screen reader support in Rise. You can keep a pulse on all the latest features we're working on via our What's New page.
So far in Rise, we've increased the contrast for built-in course features, added alt text for images, added keyboard-accessible navigation ...and we're working hard to add more accessibility features. Stay tuned, and let us know if you have any other questions!
Do you know when they are hoping to accomplish this? Do you have an estimated date? What workaround do you recommend for screen readers? Are there features to avoid that will not be picked up by the JAWS reader?
I do not have a timeline to provide. In the meantime, you may wish to utilize Storyline 360 or Studio 360 for your courses as the documentation that Katie shared above displays.
There are some great tips in this article.
Hi is Rise compatible with the JAWS reader yet?
Thanks for checking in, Claire! We're still working on full screenreader support, but we're not there yet. We'll keep you posted!
We would love to be able to use rise to develop training, any news on JAWS accessibility?
Thanks for checking in. We don't have a timeline or news on JAWS screen reader support just yet. When we know more, we'll pass it along to you!
Hi there, Jennifer. No update yet. Our plans are to meet WCAG 2.1 by the end of 2020. We'll let you know when we've got more to share!
