Longdesc vs d


Date: Oct 28, 2003 7:27AM

Hello All,
This group is so helpful!

Our state agency is moving towards producing 508 compliant pages. We are also working up a plan to repair the almost 10,000 old non-compliant pages we currently offer.

Our question is how long, if at all, should we plan to use the "d" for complex graphics, since newer screen readers do support the "longdesc" tag?

Should we be concerned about consistency... offering the d on some pages but not on others?

How are others dealing with this
