Re: Accessibility for Authoring Tools

I have a little experience with Captivate 2019. There is a “responsive” project type that I haven’t explored, but the “normal” project type is similar to Storyline in that the HTML output does not support zooming. If you enable the table of contents feature, it has many accessibility problems. Also, if you add links to your slides, they won’t be keyboard accessible (stick to buttons instead, which are better).

The authoring environment is not at all accessible.

It certainly would be great if some vendor could come up with something half way passable for accessible training development. Neither Captivate or Storyline are good options.

Regarding Captivate, while I haven't used it, Adobe publishes their VPATs
so you might get a sense for how well it works.
