[Resolved] Dashboard - text equivalent for graphic
 Login/Join

One of the 508 handicapped accessability requirements for web pages is "A meaningful text equivalent for every non-text element shall be provided (e.g., via "alt", "longdesc", or in element content) except for captioning of audio information, which shall comply with (b) of this section."

I have built our dashboard using the "Business Intelligence Dashboard View Builder" using the Block Type: List to add links to the blocks. When the page is displayed there is a graphic displayed on the links to denote that it is an html link.

Is there a way to either edit the code generated by the List to add the 'meaningful text wquivalent' for the graphic, or modify the Block Type: List to not insert the graphic?

I would search the documentation. Here is something about accessibility:

WebFOCUS New Features > Dashboard Enhancements > Accessibility Banner Link

There's probably lots more...

Ron, it looks like an oversight by Information Builders, all other components appear to use alt tags (e.g. "Edit Contents", "Refresh Contents", "Links", Tab names...).

I would open a case with Tech Support.

This is a snippet of code from a list block, The image has an empty alt tag:

<td><a href="javascript:void(0);" oncontextmenu="event.cancelBubble=true;event.returnValue=false;showPopupNoTree(1, event, '/ibi_apps/Controller?
WORP_REQUEST_TYPE=WORP_LAUNCH_CGI&IBIMR_action=MR_RUN_FEX&IBIMR_domain=portal001%2Fportal001.htm&IBIMR_folder=%23reportsaabbc&IBIMR_fex=app%2Fchequeadj.fex&IBIMR_flags=skipamper
&IBIMR_sub_action=MR_STD_REPORT&');" onclick="showPopupNoTree(1, event, '/ibi_apps/Controller?WORP_REQUEST_TYPE=WORP_LAUNCH_CGI&IBIMR_action=MR_RUN_FEX
&IBIMR_domain=portal001%2Fportal001.htm&IBIMR_folder=%23reportsaabbc&IBIMR_fex=app%2Fchequeadj.fex&IBIMR_flags=skipamper&IBIMR_sub_action=MR_STD_REPORT&', null, null, null, true);" 
onmouseout="hideMenu();" onkeydown="showPopupNoTreeOnEnter(1, event, '/ibi_apps/Controller?
WORP_REQUEST_TYPE=WORP_LAUNCH_CGI&IBIMR_action=MR_RUN_FEX&IBIMR_domain=portal001%2Fportal001.htm&IBIMR_folder=%23reportsaabbc&IBIMR_fex=app%2Fchequeadj.fex
&IBIMR_flags=skipamper&IBIMR_sub_action=MR_STD_REPORT&');">
<img alt="" src="/ibi_html/javaassist/images/ftv2/tree_item-icon.gif" border="0" style="{vertical-align:middle}"> Cheque Adjustments</a></td>


This is a snippet of code for the control bar, the anchor has a filled-in alt tag:

<a href="javascript:onRefresh(blockName, focexecName)" title="Refresh Contents" alt="Refresh Contents">
<img src="/ibi_html/javaassist/images/worp/refreshicon.gif" border=0></a>
