Skip Player Navigation When Tabbing Through Elements with a Screen Reader

We included a new accessibility feature for learners with screen readers in Articulate Storyline 2 Update 5. Now you can skip player navigation elements—such as the sidebar, seekbar, and previous/next buttons—when you're tabbing through slide objects with a screen reader (Flash output only). Here's how it works:

  1. First, you'll tab through the slide objects in the order defined by the content author.
  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.

The option to skip player navigation when using a screen reader is always enabled. You don't need to do anything to activate it. Just install the latest update and publish your course.
