Hello,

I am having multiple issues with 508 compliance with Captivate 2019. For some reason any text (regardless of if it has alt text or not) can't be read by a JAWS screen reader. The only time I can get anything text based to show up and be read via a screen reader is if I make it a transparent button which if you do that will always end not matter what with "click enter" so that is not a viable solution. I am not sure if this is an oversight because I wasn't having any of these issues with 2017 captivate. In fact, I have a fully 508 compliant course in 2017 and when I converted it to a 2019 file none of the former text was working. This is leading me to believe that captivate 2019 is not 508 compliant. Has anyone experinced this issue and/or have a solution? I have checked https://helpx.adobe.com/captivate/using/creating-accessible-projects.html which has not been updated since october of 2018.
