Loretta's conversion of the Word document results in a lack of images; an important part of the document! I will try and get around to converting it to HTML and putting up online somewhere, as soon as I can.

Subject: Fwd: The accessibility problems with image maps


Vision Australia submitted a comment in the most recent request for
comment regarding WCAG 2.0 (draft) about the inaccessibility of image
maps and that this does not appear to be addressed by WCAG 2.0.

I was requested to attempt to further clarify what the accessibility
issues with image maps are. I've attached a document that attempts to

Note that the document only attempts to clarify the accessibility
issues for those members working on this issue, and does not propose

With regards,
