A document with a client-side image map; the image represents a traffic light. The img element has an alt attribute that duplicates the src attribute with the URI to the image instead of an appriopriate text alternative. The alt attributes of the image map's area elements are empty (the alt attributes are present, but there is no text or white space between the double quotation marks). Alternative text for areas in client-side image maps: img element with image map; empty alt attributes in image map areas and URL as alt for image Christophe.Strobbe@esat.kuleuven.be en Copyright BenToWeb 2004-2007 2005-08-29 accepted QA How to specify alternate text How to create client-side image maps Client-side image maps: the map and area elements

This test case is intended to fail: instead of an appropriate text alternative, the alt attribute contains the URL to the image file. In addition, the text alternatives for the areas of the image map are empty.

The image has no proper text description associated with it (the URL of the image file). Moreover, none of the areas in the image map has a text description.

The img element has a alt attribute containing the relative URL of the image file. Moreover, since each of the area elements in the map element has an alt attribute, this case does not pass.

This test case is identical to sc1.1.1_l1_010, except that the alt attributes of the area elements are now empty.

This test case maps to failure F30: Failure of SC 1.1.1 due to using text alternatives that are not alternatives (e.g. filenames or placeholder text).

(In Mozilla 1.7.3, SeaMonkey 1.1, Firefox 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0, the map does not work if the map element has only an id and no name attribute.)
