How Do Screen Readers Work With Articulate Storyline Courses?

Hello, everyone! I had to take a brief leave of absence for a few months, but I’m back! I did work on a few things while I was out, including this video I created for ATD.

Perhaps you’re familiar with the concept of screen readers, such as NVDA and JAWS, and the fact that someone who is blind or has limited vision might use them to navigate your courses. But have you ever experienced a screen reader yourself? Do you know how screen readers interact with Articulate Storyline content?

In this video, I go through two screens of an Articulate Storyline 360 course with the NVDA screen reader. The first time, I go through the slides using all the defaults in Storyline. The second time, I go through again with the accessibility features set up.

This video will give you a general understanding of how screen readers work, as well as an appreciation for how important it is to optimize your slides for someone who uses a screen reader.
