ABSTRACT

Accessibility is one of the key checkpoints in all software’s products, applications & websites. Accessibility with digital images has always been a major challenge for the industry. Images form an integral part of certain type of documents & most of the Web 2.0 compliant websites. Audience challenged with blindness and many dyslexics only makes use of screen readers/ text readers/narrator software programs to access the computer and computer displayed information. Such audience cannot view digital images/pictures. Hence drafting accessible documents or designing accessibility enhanced websites containing digital images representing figures, diagrams, map, snaps etc is a challenges. There are various published best practices for accessibility of documents or website containing images so that they can be better understood by the visually impaired users. But these are truly not enough to cover all kind of practical scenarios and this paper positions a need for a more innovative solutions. The paper also proposes accessibility enhanced image formation technique with relevant modification required in screen readers/narrator software programs and positions its edge over the existing methods.

Este artículo propone un sistema de marcado de imágenes para accesibilidad a partir de la descripción de las diferentes partes que la componen. La idea es añadir metadatos que describan la imagen por partes. El ejemplo que usa, evidentemente bien escogido para que funcione, es un diagrama de flujo en el que se describen cada una de sus partes por separado. No está mal pero parece poco relevante pudiendo usar longdesc para facilitar una descripción completa de la imagen.
