iFrames

When using iframes, it’s important that all content contained in them is accessible.

Testing

  1. Identify all iframes on a page.
  2. Using the keyboard, navigate to each frame to ensure content is accessible.
  3. Check the title or name attribute of each frame for a description of the content.

Examples

Fails

<iframe src="../iframeform/"></iframe>

This iframe doesn’t have a title or name.

<iframe src="../iframeform/" name="Provide an address form"></iframe>

This name isn’t correct.

Passes

<iframe src="../iframeform/" title="Provide Name Form"></iframe>

Correct title is provided. This would also pass if this information was in a name attribute.
