Support Details

The above example is a lightweight SVG wrapper around a standard bitmap (raster) image. You can inline the SVG or reference it via <img> element. The image should render visibly in any modern browser. The image accessibility is available in any browser that supports basic SVG accessibility. For example, Safari on OS X and iOS.

See a demo video of accessible SVG on iOS (M4V file) outlined in a WebKit post on ARIA and the WebKit Accessibility Inspector.
