  • CSU Description Test Type: Automated, Visual Possible Result: Pass/Fail, Warn, Visual, N/A Long DescriptionResourcesCustomizable H24 Provide text alternatives for the area elements of image maps (WCAG2) Auto Pass / Fail N/A The objective of this technique is to provide text alternatives that serve the same purpose as the selectable regions of an image map. An image map is an image divided into selectable regions defined by area elements. Each area is a link to another Web page or another part of the current Web page. The alt attribute of each area element serves the same purpose as the selectable area of the image. http://www.w3.org/ TR/WCAG20- TECHS/H24.html http://www.csun.ed u/universaldesignce nter/web- accessibility-criteria- image-map H35 Provide text alternatives on applet elements (WCAG2) AutoPass / Fail Provide a text alternative for an applet by using the alt attribute to label an applet and providing the text alternative in the body of the applet element. Both mechanisms are required due to the varying support of the alt attribute and applet body text by user agents. http://www.w3.org/ TR/WCAG20- TECHS/H35.html H36 Use alt attributes on images used as submit buttons (WCAG2) AutoPass / Fail For input elements of type 'image', the alt attribute of the input element is used to provide a functional label. This label indicates the button's function, but does not attempt to describe the image. The label is especially important if there are multiple submit buttons on the page that each lead to different results. http://www.w3.org/ TR/WCAG20- TECHS/H36.html
