Tagging answer options in quizzes in a foreign language

Community Member

Hello all,

Apologies if this has been covered before but I couldn't find a thread that brings up this specific issue. I have a foreign language accessibility question concerning quiz items, in particular multiple choice answer options with radio buttons.

While the quiz question prompt reads well in JAWS in the target foreign language, it seems that even if you tag the radio button answer options in the correct language (e.g., <span lang="es">Me gusta jugar</span>) the tagging is not recognized by the screen reader. Does JAWS not recognize the language when it switches to forms mode? What are ways to make radio button answer options accessible to a foreign language student who is a screen reader user?

Thanks for any help you can provide!
