Chapter 7. User Experience: Museums on the Web > Accessing Culture and History

Accessing Culture and History

Perhaps the central theme of accessible design is the need for text alternatives to graphic elements. In this chapter, we illustrate the importance of this provision as we examine how museums represent their enormous collections of physical artifacts and information. We address a number of accessibility issues, paying particular attention to the treatment of ALT text and other equivalent text alternatives, as we explore online collections.
