Based on WCAG and the Norwegian “Kvalitetskrav from Difi” (although not active anymore due to waiting for EU regulations) it is seen as best practice to show more info about a link by including filetype and size, if we are linking to a file (Word, PDF and so on). The user should know it is a PDF before clicking the link, and also know the size of the file.
This is very important for many of our governmental customers and something I wish we could solve somehow. It is easy if the file is linked up to an article by a content selector, but many times customer inserts it as a content link to a file object inside the HTML Area, and here we have very limited possibility to format/edit the output. Do you have any suggestion to how we can solve this? Or do you have anything in your backlog for more control of the output from the HTML Area coming soon?
