This session will cover how to choose accessible Rise blocks and avoid interactions that are inherently inaccessible. It will cover how to add alt text in Rise to meaningful images. It will also cover how to use the alt text feature to hide decorative images. An explanation of how to implement headings, and how to add a transcript and captions to videos will be provided.

The Storyline part of the session will explore what interactive elements are inherently inaccessible. It will then cover how to use the focus order pane to create a logical read order for the given items. The focus order pane can also be used to remove decorative items and add alternative text to meaningful items.An overview of how to add captions and transcripts to media will be provided. The importance of using dialog layers to convey feedback will be highlighted.

Rise and Storyline checklists covering the different accessibility strategies covered will be provided. Each checklist will provide steps for how to implement each accessibility strategy. Some examples will be included in the checklist to help guide designers.
The goal of this presentation is to highlight strategies for creating accessible courses using Rise and Storyline.
