Studio 360: How to Skip Player Navigation When Tabbing Through Courses with a Screen Reader

Articulate Studio 360 lets learners with screen readers skip player navigation elements, such as previous/next buttons and sidebar tabs, when they're tabbing through slide content. It works in Flash and HTML5 output. Here's how:

  1. You'll tab through the slide objects from top to bottom and left to right.
  2. When you press the Tab key after the last object on the slide, the screen reader will instruct you to press the spacebar or Enter key if you want to skip player navigation.
    • If you press the spacebar or Enter key, your next tab will jump back to the first object on the slide.
    • If you don't press the spacebar or Enter key, your next tab will proceed to the player navigation elements, starting with the previous and next buttons (if present).

The option to skip player navigation is always enabled in Presenter 360 courses, Quizmaker 360 quizzes, and Engage 360 interactions. You don't need to do anything to activate it.
