StoryMaps and ADA Accessibility Related to Flashing Screens

Our organization uses MapJournal StoryMaps as a primary information product for the general public (see an example here). Unfortunately, we have been informed that a few users with neurological disabilities that require they not interact with flashing screens have been concerned about this risk with the method of scolling, loading, and zooming in StoryMaps. While we provide a large print icon in our StoryMaps to provide a PDF version, and this workaround works well when individuals know to click it, this is a major concern for the safety of our users.

Are there other organizations who have had similar problems and come up with good solutions?
