Accessible Images: When Do You Use the ALT Attribute?

Feb 13, 2015 No Comments

I know when I began my journey along the path to accessible content some years ago, the very first area folks recommended I invest some time in was in making sure that the images in my web content were accessible. At first, I didn’t quite know where to start. Then I learned that there was an alt attribute found on the image element within my web content. I learned that in this alt attribute I could place a description of the image. And I started wondering, well, when should I use that alt attribute? Are there instances when I shouldn’t be using it?

So lets dive right in and cover scenarios where you will want to make use of the alt attribute on your images
