Description Graham87 2007-01-17 07:51:24 UTC
On my screen reader JAWS, I can press enter to 
get the long description of an image. This does 
not work on the URL above; I get taken to

The HTML looks correct.

<div style="position: relative;"><img
alt="picture of a foo" width="200" height="131" longdesc="/wiki/Image:Foo.jpg"
usemap="#ImageMap_1" /><a href="/wiki/Image:Foo.jpg" title="About this image"

On further testing, his appears to be a problem with JAWS, not with the 
ImageMap extension. I can't find the script in JAWS which deals with the

directory. When I tried the example in my test copy of MediaWiki, where the 
only setting I have changed is to allow image uploads, I get the following

I've jus tested this on JAWS 8, the latest version of JAWS and the long 
descriptions work fine there. It's a paid upgrade though. My previous test 
versions where the longdesc links did not work were JAWS 5.1 and 6.0, which 
could conceivably still be used by a lot of people.

As far as I understand it's not a problem with the imagemap extension? --> Close
this bug as WFM.
