2. Choosing Settings
Select the "Settings" button. This allows users to establish
default settings in the following four categories:
- Conformance Level
- Automatic Repairs
- Saving Files
Before beginning an evaluation, a level of accessibility must be established
for the site in question.
The Conformance Level tab includes the following four radio button options:
- A Level - priority 1 items only
- AA Level - priority 1 and 2 items
- AAA Level - priority 1, 2, and 3 items
- Section 508 Compliance
For more information on compliance levels please refer to: Web Content
Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 or Section
Depending upon the conformance level selected, the Automatic Repairs
tab allows users to pre-select up to six different tasks A-Prompt will
repair automatically in each document it reviews. The user will be notified
of the accessibility problem, but the actual repair takes place without
requiring user input.
The Saving Files tab presents users with four radio button options.
- Selecting the first radio button deletes the original file and replaces
it with the repaired file.
- The second radio button renames the original file with a new extension
and saves the repaired file under the original file name.
- Choosing the third radio button will rename the repaired file with
a new extension and leave the original file intact.
- Selecting the final radio button allows users to save the repaired
file under a new name.
Selecting the d-Link tab allows users to create a "d-link" for all images
that include a "longdesc" file. Although "longdesc" has been adopted by
the WAI as part of its accessibility guidelines, it is not widely supported
by most current browsers. To compensate for the lack of browser support
for the "longdesc" attribute, A-Prompt places a "d-link" beside images
linking visitors to a detailed description.
When the "Create a d-link for images with longdesc files" checkbox is
enabled, users can direct A-Prompt to insert d-links automatically into
their documents or have the program prompt them each time a "longdesc"
attribute is encountered.
