6.4 Embed - iFrame

Before You Submit Your "Request a Web Edit" Ticket

  • If you are trying to embed a map or an interactive graphic or multimedia file, please verify that it is accesible.
  • If you are unable to verify that the content being embedded via an iFrame is fully accessible, then please create a text version of all the information conveyed in the embedded content.
  • Any videos must have a transcript and be closed captioned before they can be added to the site.

What You Need in Your Ticket

  • If you have verified the content is accessible, please submit the verification you have received.
