Checkpoint A.02

Checkpoint A.02 focuses on providing a text equivalent for applets and programmatic objects. See the sections below for specific examples and techniques.

Applets and Programmatic Objects

The HTML APPLET tag is deprecated in HTML 4.0 (which means you should start using the new OBJECT element instead). If you are modifying an APPLET to make it more accessible, use the "alt" attribute to briefly describe the action or purpose. Also, if it will help the audience to understand what the APPLET is meant to convey, include a more detailed description in the content of the APPLET element (i.e. between the <APPLET> and </APPLET> tags)
