Applets, Scripts, and Downloads

Applets and Scripts

Both applets and scripts are unique enough that it is difficult to provide accessibility guidelines for them. University of Oregon web designers may consult with the Adaptive Tech Access Adviser regarding accessible applets and scripts.



Most computer users with disabilites will know if they have configured their machines for downloads. The most useful information is to include the type and size of download in the link. So a link "President's Hello (28K Real Audio)" would be more useful than "President's Hello." The same holds true for video and binary downloads.
