8.1. Associate a detailed description with rich content (charts, maps, Flash animations)

Rich content can sometimes convey so much information that a detailed description needs to be added. This is often the case with charts and informative animations, among others.

In these circumstances, a detailed description in text form must be added.

It must convey the same or equivalent information as what is conveyed by the complex rich content. It must be available either on the same page, or on another page via a link available near the rich content.

The calendar above is a Flash animation that conveys complex information. A link, with the text “Calendar in text format”, sends the user to a detailed description of the rich content.

Warning

If the complex rich content has been supplied for publication without a detailed description, it should be returned to the person who provided them in order to obtain a detailed description.
