I would like to use a variable inside of the "Accessibility Title". This variable is updated every few slides to a new name, which is why I chose to store the text in a variable rather than hard-coding it. How can I apply this variable to the Accessibility Title? See image below for example. Any and all feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!

How exactly are you changing the ARIA label in execute advanced actions?
What is the code thats being executed?
I would love to know the answer to this as well!!
It could be great help if you tell us how to eanble the accessiblity for system and user variables (Dynamic data).
Hello Captivate folks!
Say, I noticed there has not been much said about automatically getting Captivate variables to be read nicely by readers...so I did some exploring (and creative codeing) during the ole pandemic....and wanted to share a very simple test project with you all......
Use the link below to test your accessibility readers to see if they will read you back actual variable values instead of the usual reading of...$$varname$$...etc.
NOTE: this is a very very basic demo to see how my basic idea works......if it seems to be working and you are intrested....I'd be happy to share my algorithm I came up with........I did not put tons of time in making the demo look nice and etc. and I'm crazy busy......its just to the point for example and testing purposes.
ALL Items in highlighted in YELLOW are all objects that contain one or more Captivate variables.....
Very basic demo URL: https://bit.ly/3jCl0fw
The algorithnm idea I came up with also tracks all variables used so that it can update them with new data when moving back and forth between slides!
Just seeking feedback on if it works or not....if the idea seems to be working correctly....I'll share how it was done so that others better than I can make it even better....
Thanks in advace for your time and feedback - the demo is extremely simple and to the point!!
Hi, this looks great! I'm trying to solve the same issue in my own course and would love to see if I could use the solution you found if you don't mind sharing it. Thanks!
Hi. Would love to see how you did this! This issue is HUGE for me and accessibility! Please share your method. Thank you in advance!
This is tremendous. Like everyone else, I'd be thrilled to learn how you pulled this off. It would be great to fix this glaring issue with Captivate variables and screen readers!
