For all non-text content at least one of the following is true:

 

For non-text content that presents information:

 

-- if the information can be presented in text, then text alternatives

present the same information as the non-text content.

 

--if the content is multimedia, live audio-only or live video-only content,
or if the content that is primarily intended to create a specific sensory

experience, then text alternatives at least identify the non-text content
with a descriptive text label. 

 

--if the information cannot be presented in text or if the non-text

content accepts user input, then:

 

a) If the non-text content is a test or exercise that must be presented

in non-text format, then text alternatives at least identify the

non-text content with a descriptive text label. In addition, if the

purpose of the test is to confirm that content is being operated by a

person rather than a computer, then multiple versions are provided to

accommodate multiple different disabilities.

 

b) otherwise text alternatives at least identify the purpose of the

non-text content.

 

For non-text content that does not present information (decorative,
formatting, invisible), text alternatives communicate to assistive
technology that the content should not be rendered.

 

 

 

access empowers people...

        ...barriers disable them...
