Mock-ups: Entering Checklists and Techniques from WCAG 2.0 Guidelines

Guideline 1.1 For non-text content, provide text equivalents that serve the same purpose or convey the same information as the non-text content, except when the sole purpose of the non-text content is to create a specific sensory experience (for example, music and visual art) in which case a text label or description is sufficient.

Level 1 Success Criteria for Guideline 1.1

  1. Text-equivalents are explicitly associated with non-text content, except when the non-text content is intended to create a specific sensory experience (for example, music without words and visual art). [I]
    • The text equivalent fulfills the same function as the author intended for the non-text content (that is, it conveys all of the intended information and achieves the same function as the non-text content).

    Exception:

    If the purpose is to let users provide the text-equivalent (for example, a spelling test) then the text-equivalent is not required.

    Non-text content that is designed to create a specific sensory experience (such as music without words or visual art) has a text label or a text description explicitly associated with it. [I]

Level 2 Success Criteria for Guideline 1.1

  1. No level 2 success criteria for this guideline.

Level 3 Success Criteria for Guideline 1.1

  1. A text document (for example, a movie script) is provided that includes all important visual information, dialogue, and other important sounds. [I]
