3.1.1 Language of Page 3.1.2 Language of Parts – How to make your training material meet the success criteria


TAG – Training Accessibility Guidelines (Question 40)

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:

3.1.1 Language of Page
3.1.2 Language of Parts

Questions to consider:

Is the language of the page/section identified using the HTML lang attribute (<html lang=”en”>, for example)?

How Articulate Storyline 2 can meet success criteria:

  • By default Articulate Storyline 2 pages are rendered out with the following HTML code (<html style=”height: 100%;” lang=”en”>).
  • Since the language output is based on the development tool all  courses should be in one language per SCORM Package.  As well, manually changing the code maybe required (<html style=”height: 100%;” lang=”es”>) based on the language of the content.
