Storyline 2 is the industry’s favorite authoring tool because it’s so easy to create engaging, interactive e-learning with Storyline’s simple, powerful features. And with the new features in our latest free update (Storyline 2 Update 5), it’s now even easier to create accessible content.

We’re excited to share six new features that will help you create content that’s optimized for learners with screen readers. Here’s what’s new:

WCAG 2.0 Support

Reach a wider audience with new support for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

Custom Tab Order

Make sure learners using screen readers hear the right content at the right time by defining a custom tab order for slide objects.


Customizable Player Font Size

Now you can increase the player font size up to 200% to help visually impaired learners navigate your course.

Skip Player Navigation Option

Give learners with screen readers the option of skipping player elements when they’re tabbing through slide content.
