Just wondering if there is a way to change the color of the initial "Play" button for HTML5 projects. The rest of the project is not published with any playback controls.

The current grey button is too light to pass Accessibility contrast ratios.

TIA!

I simply replace it by an empty PNG and make it clear on the the start screen that they should click in the center of the slide (which remains active). Have a look at:

Ah, I didn't realize that the play button was removed in 2019. This will make it much easier. I can just create a high-contrast play button in the Illustrator poster image file.

@Paul -- I followed your solution initially to create a poster image.

Thank you both so much!

The AutoPlay was removed for all HTML output with the second version of CP2017.

I prefer to have a filled in image instead of the default. Here is my solution: Adobe Captivate - Get Rid of Blank Project Startup - YouTube
