Sarah,

We have no official statement regarding Accessibility in Adobe Slate at this time. If this is a feature that is important to you, I would recommend posting an "Idea" here that asks us to "Update Slate for Accessibility requirements" or something of that nature. Then others with the same concern can add their voices to yours.

Do projects created with Adobe Slate work with a screen reader or other assistive technology?

I want to find out how accessible stories created with Adobe Slate are for people who might be using a screen reader or other assistive technology in order to view them. Are there particular ways of creating the story that would make it more accessible? Are there things to avoid if you want your story to be accessible to a wide audience? Are some themes better than others from an accessibility point of view?

I am curious about accessibility with Adobe Slate as well, as I work with online courses in higher education and we need to know, for instance, that students using screen readers and keyboard shortcuts would find maneuvering through the story efficient enough.

No, Slate stories are not accessible at the time. The generated web page is responsive HTML which most screen readers have a hard time with. This is an issue that we do plan on addressing in the future.
