  1. language of the project

    In the accessibility panel, we can select a language for each block. For now, it need to be changed manually for each block. It would be useful to select the language by default in the project settings. As I develop french content, I need to change manually each block language.

  2. Allow easy reordering of objects for screen reader optimization

    Currently we only have control over the tab order of active objects (buttons and links) in Tab Order; to change the order that items are read by a screen reader we have to rearrange the timeline order, which is extremely cumbersome for complex pages. Make this easier to edit so we can more efficiently develop accessible content for screen readers in Captivate

  3. Allow for full editing of the quiz captions

    Currently, the font, text size, and text color of the captions on the quiz slides cannot be edited. Through Theme Editor, the caption backgrounds can be changed for success and error, but not for incomplete. The message content can be edited through Preferences, but there is no way to change the font, text size, and text color. This poses accessibility issues as there is often not enough contrast for these messages.

  5. Captions in Multi-state objects & auto caption from audio file

    First: Captions should be generated automatically from an audio file as they are in Premiere Pro. We should not have to type in every word of a transcript in order to caption a project.

    Second: There must be a way to caption multi-state objects that have audio files attached that are triggered from a bookmark interaction on the timeline. This is an essential accessibility feature. It was missing in Captivate Classic as well. Fix this please.

    Thank you.

  6. allow people to add custom voices for text to speech.

    Allow users to add custom voices for text to speech. Also, when you have to break a sentence up, the program adds a space of blank air, making it awkward.

  7. Software simulation settings should be sticky

    In 2019, when you created a software simulation it remembered size, location on screen and other settings. Now, each time I create a simulation, it asks me for the same details. This means if I have forgotten to take a screen or series of actions, the capture area is not in the same place. This means a lot of messing around to get the capture lining up with the software window. It's incredibly frustrating. Also, please remember the tracking setting! I don't want or need automatic tracking, so having it reset each time is irritating.

  9. add separate accessibility options for links when more than one link is used in the same block of text

    when you create a text block each block of text has its own accessibility options.
    but within each text block you can add more than one link.

    can we make it so that each link has its own accessibility option.

  10. Make default quiz buttons picked up by focus area for keyboard accessibility

    The default quiz buttons can be tabbed through with a keyboard, but after you turn the focus setting on, the focus area does not appear on the default quiz buttons-- this means to make a truly accessible quiz you have to use custom quiz buttons. Please fix this.

  11. Please can you make Adobe Captivate 2023 compatible for Linux as it is more secure than Windows. Many people have moved across to Linux.

    Please can you make Adobe Captivate 2023 compatible for Linux as it is more secure than Windows. Many people have moved across to Linux. They don't use Windows anymore. I have Linux and Windows now because I don't have a choice as the Adobe website only offers installations for Windows and Mac. Linux is a lot more secure, please please implement
