JAWS does not identify and read tabbed screenflow headings



JAWS does not identify ScreenFlow Tabbed headings. The numbers are not read, and their specific relationship to each task is not noted or explained. The text items are simply noted as a list of items.

Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Login as an accessibility user account
  2. Run a tabbed screenflow
  3. Verify if JAWS can identify the tabbed screenflow headings

Root Cause

This issue was determined to be a product enhancement request.


The current version of the product unfortunately does not have the support for providing alternative text to the number images. JAWS only grabs focus on the text below the numbers and reads out as is. The only way to add anything more to that currrently is by editing the text in the Assignment Properties of screenflow.
