HTML and XHTML Documents that load Java applets where
applet is not deprecated.
This technique relates to Success Criterion 1.1.1: Non-text Content (Sufficient).
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. In this technique,
are required due to the varying support of the
alt attribute and applet body text by
Example 1: An applet to play the tic-tac-toe game.
<applet code="tictactoe.class" width="250" height="250" alt="tic-tac-toe game"> tic-tac-toe game </applet>
- View the source code of the applet element
- Check that the applet element contains an
altattribute with a text alternative for the applet
- Check that the applet element contains a text alternative for the applet in the body of the applet element
- Checks #2 and #3 are true.
