Adobe® Captivate® software offers you enhanced support for HTML5-based eLearning content and also lets you create courses that meet accessibility standards. You can make your simulations accessible by using the accessibility features to provide descriptions and captions and to assign keyboard shortcuts. Adobe Captivate makes creating accessible simulations a simple task


Adobe® Captivate® software allows you to rapidly author interactive eLearning and HTML5-based mLearning content. Using accessibility features to provide descriptions and assigning keyboard shortcuts, you can make your simulations accessible to anyone, regardless of disability. Adobe Captivate uses your captions and text captured onscreen to help you create descriptions quickly and then delivers them to screen reader users automatically. Adobe Captivate helps you ensure that your content is accessible by keyboard by making it easy to provide a variety of keyboard shortcuts for your simulations.

Work with major assistive technologies

Adobe Captivate takes advantage of the broad support for Adobe Flash Player among assistive technologies. Adobe Captivate simulations can be read by all assistive technologies that support Adobe Flash Player software. This includes Window-Eyes from GW Micro and JAWS from Freedom Scientific. There is no additional software required on the part of the end user.

Provide descriptions for movies and slides

Adobe Captivate allows you to easily provide text descriptions for your simulations. These descriptions provide details about the movie or slide to users of screen readers and other assistive technology.

Create keyboard-accessible content

Adobe Captivate allows you to make sure that all buttons and clickable areas are accessible by keyboard. This allows individuals who have difficulty using the mouse to view your movies, even if they use clickable areas in simulations.

Create accessible quizzes

Adobe Captivate includes a set of accessible question types including multiple choice, true and false, and Likert scale. These questions allow you to create simple, accessible quizzes quickly and easily.

Provide closed captions for audio content

Closed captions are the standard means of accommodation for users who are deaf or hard of hearing. Adobe Captivate features straightforward captioning tools to help you make presentations accessible to these users.
