Testing & RemediationHow to test: Open you website up and begin reading the content. Are there any places where you’ve used a word that the meaning is hard to grasp without knowing the pronunciation? If so, have you provided the pronunciation inline? How to remediate: If the content on your site uses any word where the meaning is ambiguous without knowing the pronunciation, you must provide one of the following:
- Provide the pronunciation (phonetic spelling) immediately following the word
- Linking to the pronunciation
- Providing a glossary that includes pronunciation information
- Using the ruby element
Questions and Answers
My page looks good visually, but am not sure if it's structure is layed out properly, or if I used the right elements. How am I supposed to know, or is there not 'one right way' to do it?
As an example, let's suppose I want to write the following. 'The french word bonjour means hello in english.' My sites language is english, but I would like screen readers to know that 'bonjour' is written in french. Is that something I should even bother...
