- All links in server-side image maps need to be repeated elsewhere in the page in non-graphical format such as a list of links .Links should be distinguished from surrounding text with sufficient color contrast and underlined.
- Use client-side image maps instead of server-side image maps.
- All client-side image maps must have appropriate alternative text for each image, as well as each hot spot region.
- Any image map elements must have their link destination correctly titled.
