And I'm happy to put you in touch with non-JAWS screenreader users if that would help in terms of testing.

You want to look in XMLEngine.fla. There is quite a bit of code in there...

Happy to work with you on this,

We've been doing a lot of testing here to see how we can improve Xerte behaviour with screen readers (mainly Jaws). Many thanks for the help when my colleague has posted previously, and for the updated engine file which seemed to solve quite a few of the issues. I wasn't sure where Xerte was on the open/closed source side of things but was wondering whether I might be able to take a look through the source file for this (an .fla file, presumably?) and see if there's any further improvements I could make? Anything we found we would of course share with the Xerte community.

Kind Regards,
