Dealing with embedded content in Word documents

Technique K: Icons linking embedded-content

When reviewing items in the Microsoft Word accessibility checker you may encounter items labeled “Object” that reveal an embedded file. These occur because the report builders were guided to submit a single file and some of the Appendices are tables based on Excel or complex HTML files that would lose their formatting if directly imported into Word.

Example of extracting some embedded HTML content

One of the reports in the challenge set is illustrated:

= the Object is encountered in the Accessibility Checker

Object inside the file

Open the file

Get the address of the file from the browser address

~/AppData/Local/Temp folder

PCO Survey questionnaire

use code to open file

save the file html source
