Some specific technology and plug-ins do not give consideration to accessibility. Persons with disabilities and the elderly can have troubled grasping the content and operating them.
Example and Implementation
- Use accessible special technology or plug-ins.
- Avoid only providing information in PDF format (as of March 2002), in consideration of audio voiceover.
Use the following as reference in providing alternative methods:
- the plug-in or special technology content, or the information which enables usage of these (such as the URL for the download page), in text form.
- Use the (object)(/object) tags for Java applets and plug-ins. (When specifying (embed) for plug-ins, use (noembed), and when specifying (applet) for Java applets, use (applet)(/applet).)
