Re: [EXTERNAL] - Software vs Web testing

It appears from looking at this that the opposite is true, namely that it is not accessible to be examining things within Captivate but that the HTML output could be made accessible, at least for this version though some are odd like not being able to create a title for an html page:


Many say something along these lines:

Authored Content (HTML): Authors can ensure that content meets this criterion.

Do you have a link to some of that course content that some of us could take a look at or does it require access credentials we don't have?

Subject: [EXTERNAL] - [WebAIM] Software vs Web testing

CAUTION: This email came from a non-OC system or external source. Beware of phishing and social engineering!

I continue to encounter push-back from a third party organization who is building courses in Adobe Captivate and then testing them within Adobe Captivate for Section 508 compliance.
I am then provided a web link to test the course for Section 508 compliance and therefore test against Web standards - according to said third party organization this is wrong because they're working in Captivate.

Can someone PLEASE provide some insight or point out something I'm potentially missing here?

Thank you!
