Hi, Paragraph (l) of the Section 508 web standards reads as follows. When pages utilize scripting languages to display content, or to create interface elements, the information provided by the script shall be identified with functional text that can be read by assistive technology. I'm focusing on the word "identified" in that paragraph. This sounds like that assistive technology only needs to know that script elements exist, not that it necessarily needs to be able to use those elements. Note that I'm only going on the language of the paragraph, not how I think that pages with scripts should function, as in assistive technology should be able to work with the script elements besides identify them. My question is how do you interpret this paragraph? Thanks. Jim ---------- Jim Homme, Usability Engineering. 412-544-1810.
