Dear All,
I want to create a graphical site map. Bad news to start with, I know. However, with the alt attribute I can provide the text description for each image. However, this is not perfect.
So, I think to myself, redundant text links? Of course. The problem is that I now have two links that are the same and this must surely be confusing for screenreader users and alike?
So, is there a suitable way to display a site map graphically and make it accessible across all priorities, keep the design integrity and offer text links as well? I would also appreciate it if anyone can provide me with links to sites that have got around this problem, too. I have read the WAI guideline but it doesn't offer me the alternative I required. I know that I could offer a text-only site map as an alternative, but I do prefer to have a page that everyone can use without sending people off to another area of the site for this one page!
Thanks in advance everyone.
