Longdesc
A
longdesc (or "long description") file is used to describe images that are too complex to summarize in alt text. Rather than including the description in the CNXML markup, the full, detailed description is contained in a separate file that is linked from the
media
element. This allows you to describe the image in as much detail as necessary without needing to keep the description short. A longdesc file:
 Can be any file type, though a basic textonly HTML file is most appropriate.
 Can be loaded into a Connexions module like any other image or resource file.
 Is not a replacement for alt text, but instead is a chance for the author to elaborate on alt text.
 Is only necessary when the image is so complicated that an alt text description is not sufficient to describe it.
The following example shows how to link to a longdesc file titled
earnings_report_desc.html
:
<media id="longdesc_example"
alt="An earnings graph showing steady growth of 6% over the past two quarters."longdesc="earnings_report_desc.html"><image mimetype="image/png" src="earnings_report.png" /></media>
In this example,
earnings_report_desc.html
would most likely be a simple text file describing the details of the chart, including the data points, overall trends, and any other relevant information. While the alt text describes "steady growth of 6% over the past two quarters," the longdesc file can talk about specific features of the chart, such as a dip that coincided with a recent merger or a spike that represented a major product release. A screen reader user would have the option of following this link in order to get a detailed understanding of the data that would otherwise be conveyed and understood by sighted users through visual information.
Remember, longdesc files are not common, and are usually only used when the media element contains important visual information that is too complex and/or detailed for alt text.
Captioned video and audio transcripts
Captioning is another important consideration when dealing with video content. Users who are hearing impaired may not be able to understand all of the information being conveyed in a video, limiting their access to the material being described. This can be addressed by submitting videos that are captioned, allowing those users to read along with the spoken materials. If you are not able to caption your videos, another option is to include audio transcripts of the materials as a module resource that can be easily accessed using a link. While there are no specific tools or standards for providing this type of content, the important thing to remember is to make it as easy as possible for as many people as possible to access the information you are trying to communicate.
Once you've attached your multimedia files to your module, the next step is to embed the media files in your content. This can be done by using the
<media>
element.
Questions & Answers
find the 15th term of the geometric sequince whose first is 18 and last term of 387
The given of f(x=x2. then what is the value of this f(3) 5f(x+1)
hmm well what is the answer
Abhi
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X6)^2
so it's 20 divided by X6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
is it a question of log
Abhi
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help
salma
But this is not salma it's Faiza live in lousvile Ky I garbage this so I am going collage with JCTC that the of the collage thank you my friends
salma
im all ears I need to learn
Sherica
right! what he said ⤴⤴⤴
Tamia
what is a good calculator for all algebra; would a Casio fx 260 work with all algebra equations? please name the cheapest, thanks.
algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

I'm interested in nanotube
Uday
what is nanomaterials and their applications of sensors.
what is system testing?
AMJAD
preparation of nanomaterial
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
good afternoon madam
AMJAD
what is system testing
AMJAD
what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field .
1Electronicsmanufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc
2Helth and MedicalNanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc
3 Atomobile MEMS, Coating on car etc.
and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change .
maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
