Part of Item: Examples
Comment Type: general comment
Summary of Issue: Add image map example
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Please add an example of an image that is used as an image map. This should describe the informative text alternative required for this image purpose.



For example, technique H24 has an alt attribute value of \"Areas in the library\". This could be a photo of areas in the library. The text alternative needs to indicate the fact that the image is an interactive map. (I will submit this example as a comment for the technique too.)



Proposed Change:
Add an image map example.



Possible example:



\"An image map:

An image of a building floor plan is interactive, allowing the user to select a particular room and navigate to a page containing information about that room. The short text alternative describes the image and its interactive purpose: \'Building floor plan. Select a room for more information.\'\"





Also - add \"image maps\" to the Addition Information section; paragraph starting with \"For non-text content that is a control or accepts user input , such as images used as submit buttons [,image maps] or complex animations,...\"
