Thanks! But I think accessibility>title:"___" gives the object a title attribute, not an alt-tag that can be read by screen readers? (I'm not sure...I'm going to test things out in an accessibility lab later).
I wonder if I need to change the shape into an "image" so that it can be alt-tagged?
You're right! sorry
From what I've been reading I don't think you can add an alt-tag if it's not an image.
I wonder if you can use SVG instead - just because you can easily paste right into animate. Im not sure if you can add an alt tag to them either though?
Hopefully someone else will step in and help you, but also update this thread after you test it.
I tried an SVG - you can alt-tag it. It's basically the same as adding any other image.
I wonder if Adobe reads these? It would be great to be able to alt-tag the shape objects within Edge Animate!
I'll update if I find out anything else...
Glad that works, it's an easy workflow and shouldn't be too hard to implement.
I could be wrong, but my understanding (limited) because it's using html5 & css3 - the shapes you create in An are just code interpreted and displayed all in the browser rather than actually loading images. And I think alt tag is specifically for images and has been around long before html5. But I'd imagine there would be newer methods to make html5 more accessible.
As for Adobe reading this, there were staff actively participating in this forum but recently it has become apparent that there are no An developers or Adobe staff reading this forum.
Ahh your explanation of why a shape cannot be alt-tagged makes sense.
It's too bad because it's easier to animate shape color changes using animate's shapes. Now I need to take an extra step of placing two shape images and blending them (which is not horrible).
