The Storyline 360 Player Just Got More Accessible
We know how important accessibility is. We’re committed to delivering features that empower authors to create courses that go beyond compliance and are truly accessible for all learners. With that goal in mind, we’ve overhauled our modern and classic players, making them significantly more accessible. Here’s an overview of what’s changed in the player.
Expanded Screen Reader Support
In addition to JAWS*, learners can now use NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack to view their courses on desktops, tablets, and mobile devices.
We’ve not only made it easier for screen readers to understand the structure of Storyline 360 courses, but we’ve also improved keyboard navigation and made it possible for learners to take advantage of many of the standard navigation features that screen readers provide.
Thanks to these improvements, exploring e-learning content is easier than ever for learners using assistive technologies.
