Commonly Used Terms in Web Accessibility
Web pages and documents should be structured in a hierarchical manner, see nesting.
Hyperlinks can take many forms - underlined text (often in blue), images, drop-down menus, etc. You know you've found one when you're browsing the Internet and your mouse pointer on the screen will turn from an arrow into a pointing finger.
The following outline shows an example of such a hierarchy:
Language Studies - 1
Asian Languages - 2
Germanic Languages - 2
Slavic Languages - 2
Czech - 3
Descriptive transcripts include additional information about what is heard in the video. They should contain additional descriptions, explanations, or comments that may be beneficial, such as indications of laughter or an explosion.
In order to be fully accessible to the maximum number of users, web multimedia should include both synchronized captions AND a descriptive transcript.
