Text – Text is fundamental for most multimedia systems, especially in computer applications. Text is used for coding to make a software function and to show specific instructions and information. Text is also used as an essential accessibility, for example, having an image on a web page should include some text to explain a little more detail about the image in case someone is visually impaired or the image is not being downloaded.
Images – Images appear in the majority of any multimedia applications. Images can be used to display information on it or be used as a form of evidence to compliment the text running beside it.

Images can also be displayed as galleries, allowing you to see multiple images in one space.

Video – This can run parallel with audio in the fact that video sometimes needs audio to help people to understand the content in the video. Having video alongside with audio and text is a useful form of interaction with people and helping people to understand the details of hat is going on.
Animation – Animation can be quite common in multimedia applications, as they can include all different effects and sounds to interact with people.
