This is a follow-up to my question about doing a multimedia project to be
hosted on an ipad. Because it’s with the government, it has to follow
In this case, for the visually impaired, the ipad (after turning the
‘Accessibility feature on) will read
out components on the screen to the viewer.
The ipad, when Accessibility is turned on, will read all the text shown on
my Tumult Hype screen. See screen capture.
However, in this case I only want ‘Back’ and ‘Next’ to be read aloud, plus a
line of invisible text (upper right corner) which simply describes the image (the mountain and
river) on the right to the visually impaired.
The problem is that the ipad will ALSO automatically read the 3 paragraphs
of text on the left. I especially don’t want that is I have an attached mp3 narration.
Ditto for ‘The National Park Service, Mount Rainier National Park’ sentence next to the logo which is annoyingly read out page after page.
If you notice in ‘Identity’ to the right, I have not selected the paragraphs
of text to be made into alternate text, or the ‘The National Park Service, Mount
Rainier National Park’ sentence. My only alt text is the invisible sentence describing the mountain and river.
So is there a way in Tumult Hype to prevent selected text blocks to NOT be
read aloud, even when Accessibility is turned on when using the ipad?
Hope this makes sense, and there’s a solution.
