The carousel is also sometimes referred to as the "slider" or "slides". It works by rotating a group of images that can house text, static images or video content. Carousels can also be a visual decorative feature.
There are two types of carousel available:
- Type 1 has the information text at the side of the image
- Type 2 has the information at the bottom of the image
Each slide has:
- Button text
- URL link (button)
- Transcript link (button) for video content
The component can feature up to 6 carousel slides. Editors can control the order. If only one slide is configured the component will not rotate or be animated.
Type 1 - Image only
The configuration displays the images to the right hand side of a colour block that can feature text related to the image. Editors can configure the component to feature a rolling deck of images and text. Users are able to pause the carousel to focus on a particular slide.
If not marked as decorative, all images must have alternative (or alt) text to describe the information or function of the image: accessibility.sa.gov.au/your-role/content/images
