A document with an image that represents of map of the Mediterranean in 180 AD. The document contains an object element that embeds the map in GIF format. The object element has a title attribute that identifies the image, but he image is too complex to be described in an attribute. Inside the object element is a long description that identifies the image and conveys the same information. Long description for complex image: image embedded by object; long description inside object; no longdesc attribute Christophe.Strobbe@esat.kuleuven.be en Copyright BenToWeb 2004-2007 2005-08-30 draft General Inclusion: The object element The title attribute

This test case is intended to pass because the title attribute provides a short description and the object contains an appropriate text alternative. However, poor support for the object element in some browsers may cause problems.


Can you find the long description of the image?

Can you find the long description of the image?

The image has a short text description as well as a long one.

The object element has a title attribute and a long description inside its content.

This test is identical to xhtml1_wcag2_20050630_1.1_l1_sc1_029 but the img's title attribute is moved to the object element, the fallback image was removed and thereby also the longdesc link. Since browsers do not necessarily provide access to the content of the object if the object can be displayed, it is not certain that the long description is available to users.

(Internet Explorer does not support object, to the test will not work in this browser.)
