The Web Content Accessibility Guideline Success Criteria 1.1.1 Non-text content.

This one is all about images accessibility for blind screen reader users. Basically, if you use images on your website, they must be accessible.

How do you do that? You add alternate text. That’s done through the alt attribute.

Informative images must have clear and concise alt text. Decorative images, you don’t need to actually add text, but you still need the alt attribute.

However, there’s a lot to talk about around image accessibility and 1 minute is not enough. So I will be doing a series of other videos around image accessibility.

So there you go!
