An Entertaining Ad
Surfing with a screen reader can occasionally yield humorous browsing experiences. As anyone who does this knows, you are frequently exposed to names of objects that I suspect web designers do not expect anyone will ever actually read.
These challenging names are typically exposed in situations where alternative text has not been provided for graphical links and as the names for frames on web pages.
Today I was using a web site and ran across the below entries for an iframe and the link to an ad within that frame.
pinkSexyBlond_728x90x_low_salx_U996x_0607 frame end
The really ironic thing here is that the link actually went to a web site providing financial advice and the web site where the ad was being shown was a news web site. How a pink sexy blond was involved is beyond me.
