Friday’s drive-by Captivate tip

The latest tidbit sent to the Captivate/online library instruction user interest group…

Just a reminder:  Flash-based tutorials aren’t automatically Section 508-compliant (i.e accessible to users of assistive technologies.)  Captivate allows you to make your tutorial more accessible by adding descriptive notes to a 508-compliancy field for each individual slide.  This allows a screen reader to describe to the user what’s happening in the animation.

For more about Captivate and 508 compliance, search in Captivate Help for “508 compliance.”

Happy Friday!
