The examples discussed below will focus on using two popular training development tools (Articulate Storyline 2 and Camtasia Studio).

Content will focus on how you can meet the success criteria for each section of the WCAG 2.0 Guidelines.

Content Recommendation is for the following WCAG 2.0 Sections:

1.4.5 Images of Text
1.4.9 Images of Text (No Exception)

Questions to consider:

If your content includes images of text do you also provide an ALT Text description?


How Articulate Storyline 2 can meet success criteria:

  • By not having text inside of an image file.
  • By ensuring images of text include an ALT Tag description.
  • By only setting (Object is visible to accessibility tools – enabled) if an object has educational value.
  • By using hot objects not built in hot spots, this can be done by assigning a trigger to an object.1_4_5
