Re: linking to multiple file/doc formats with same document title

Hi Angela,

Following page includes reports in different languages with same title.
Example that is little different from what you are looking at but I think
this can help:

Above page includes Annual reports in Hindi & English in PDF formats & the
same technique can be adopted for presenting documents with same title that
link to different file formats.
On the above page, context for the report, such as "Annual Report for xxx
year along with the language" is read out by the screen reader whereas
visually it appears as "English" & "Hindi".

Note: Please ignore the pdf file size for the links on the example URL page,
there seems to be some problem.

Hope this helps.

Thanks & Regards,

Subject: [WebAIM] linking to multiple file/doc formats with same document

Do any of you have any awesomely accessible pages that have links to
documents (such as reports, etc.) that are provided in multiple formats -
for example in both .doc and .pdf? I am looking for different methods of
doing this.
