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 element contains only the image map. The object elements do not have a title attribute or any other text alternative except the alt attributes of the map's area elements. Most importantly, the alt attributes of the image map's area elements are empty. Alternative text for areas in client-side image maps: two nested objects both referencing same map (inside object); empty alt attributes in image map areas Christophe.Strobbe@esat.kuleuven.be en Copyright BenToWeb 2005-2007 2005-08-29 validated How to specify alternate text General Inclusion: The object element How to create client-side image maps Client-side image maps: the map and area elements

This test case is intended to fail because none of the areas of the image map has a text alternative. The empty text alternatives are an issue in their own right, but, in addition to this, browser support for the object element may also determine if this test case is accessible or not. Internet Explorer has weak or no support for the object element. The innermost object element does not contain an img element with an alt attribute, the image itself is identified in the text above it.

Scenarios in this test case need a new question!

Did you understand what was in the image?

Begreep u wat er te zien was in de afbeelding ?

If you were not sure what was in the image, please indicate why this was unclear.

Indien u niet zeker bent over wat er in de afbeelding te zien was, geef aan waarom dit onduidelijk was.

The image has a text description in the sentence preceding it, but none of the areas in the image map has 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. However, since each of the area elements in the map element has an empty alt attribute, this case does not pass.

This test case is identical to sc1.1.1_l1_015, except that the alt attributes of the area elements are now empty.

(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 6.0 does not support object so the test does not work in this browser - tested on both Windows 2000 and Windows XP Professional.)

This test case does not map to a WCAG 2.0 technique or failure.

The image has a text description in the sentence preceding it, but none of the areas in the image map has a text description. This test case needs re-testing with a new question in the scenarios.
