I am editing content (Captivate 2019) to make it accessible. I have slides that have text boxes filled with text. I have copied and pasted the text in the text box into the “Item Accessibility” from the property inspector.
I have also followed these steps, copying and pasting the same text in the text box:
Add accessibility text to slides
A screen reader can read aloud text that appears on the computer screen. Screen readers are useful for people with visual impairment. In Adobe Captivate, you can write text describing each slide for screen readers to read aloud.
To use the slide notes (Text-to-speech and closed captioning included), click Import Slide Notes, and click OK.
So my question is, isn’t this going to be duplicative for a screen reader? Won’t the screen reader read the same text twice? Is it better to just add the text in one place instead? If so, where should it be added, at the slide or text box level? And if this is the case, what should be put in the one that doesn’t have all of the text?
Any and all help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
