A document with an object element in an image map. The object element embeds an image in PNG format, and contains another object element that embeds the GIF version of the same image. This second object elment contains an img element with the same GIF image. The alt attribute of the img element identifies the image and conveys the same information. The object elements do not have a title attribute or any other text alternative except the alt attribute of the img element.

This test case is intended to pass because the image has an appropriate text alternative in the img element that serves as a fallback for the innermost object element. However, browser support for the object element may determine if this test case is accessible or not. Internet Explorer (version 6 or earlier) has weak or no support for the object element. Only the image itself is tested, not the image map.

Do you understand the meaning of the object in the page? (The object may be an image, applet, …)

Verstehen Sie die Bedeutung des dargestellten Objektes? (Es kann sich dabei um ein Bild, ein Applet, … handeln.)

The image has a fallback with a text description.

The object element has an img element with an alt attribute as a fallback . Since there is no direct text alternative, it is not entirely clear if this code is accessible.

(In Mozilla 1.7.3 and Firefox 1.0, the map does not work if the map element has only an id and no name attribute.)

(Internet Explorer does not support object so the test does not work in this browser.)
