Access: [8.1.1.4]: ensure programmatic objects are accessible (embed) (Priority 1)

Cause:

Ensure pages are functional when programmatic objects are disabled or not supported. Make embedded objects such as movies or audio files directly accessible or compatible with assistive technologies when functionality is important. Provide a text equivalent via "alt" and "longdesc" attributes or in element content. As a last resort, provide equivalent information on an alternative page.

Example:

Bad
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">
<html lang="en">
<head>
<title>aert1.0/8.1.1</title>
</head>
<body>
<embed></embed>
</body>
</html>
