Add Audio for Test Questions for Visually Impaired

Hello!

I'm curious to hear the various ways this community provides audio for test questions to assist people that have visual impairments. I see that I can embed audio on the question page. I haven't been able to find a way to include audio in the feedback part.

I've been using Captivate and to do this, we embed audio in the response state. It's clunky but it works.

I'm new to Lectora.

Thanks in advance!

    I think I figured it out but something is wonky. When I choose the wrong answer, I don't need to hit the Submit button. It give the feedback immediately. When I choose the correct answer, I need to hit the Submit button to check. What might be causing this and will it interfere with results?

    I customized the feedback for each question by creating a group with an audio and visual. Then, I hid the group. I edited the feedback so that when the answer is wrong, the feedback action is to play the group.

    Your solution is pretty much exactly how I would have done it. I'm not an expert at accessibility, however, so be sure to test that the feedback audio objects aren't identified and accessible by your screen reader before the user selects their answer.

    Could you post a capture of your Feedback settings so we can try to track down the problem with your submit button?

    If you want the feedback to only show after clicking on the Submit button, you should select the "On Process Question" radio button at the top.

    Hope this helps!
