Accessibility issues Screen reader not reading text in fluid boxes - Captivate 2019

Hello,

I have ensured accessibility is enabled when publishing, and I know it is 'working' as any text sitting outside of a fluid box is readable, however, text contained in shape or text box within a fluid box is not read by the screen reader. Is this working as expected? Did I miss a step? Or do I need to add descriptive text to each fluid box (i.e. copy paste the text?)

It also seems as though tabbing though objects within a fluid box is also not functioning? Am I missing something here as well?

ANY/ALL help would be much appreciated,

Thank you!!

If you're looking to have the descriptions read from a screen reader, be sure you've clicked either "auto Label" (and it's auto generated) or you'll have to go in and label everything yourself.

It's generated via a javascript function. It works when published, but not when previewed, I just tried it in Captivate 2019, you have to use Enable VoiceOver. Let me know if this helps.
