Adding Alt Text To Images

Providing alternative text for images and other visual elements on your site will enable blind users to understand your site.

  • Decorative Images: Use blank alt text attribute <img src=“filename.jpg” alt=“”>
  • Normal Images: Alt text can be up to 100 characters or you can link to an html file with more information
    • <img src=“filename.gif" alt="eraser end of pencil lying on standardized test form with bubbles filled in for answers A,B,C,D.“>
    • <img src="henrymall1.gif" alt="Pillars at Henry Mall" longdesc="mall_desc.htm">
