Present info nonvisually
Illustrations can add a lot to your designs. So you need to make sure everything necessary is presented to people who don’t see the illustration as alternative text.
Meaningful alternative text includes the context and function of the illustration. Make sure everything you want users to know to continue in the flow is available to them.
You can include alternative text through means like the
Or you can present necessary alternative text next to the illustration
as text or headings,
in which case you can set the
alt attribute to an empty string.
If an illustration is only for decoration, leave the alternative text blank. Providing a description just gives users extra information that doesn’t help them.
Use meaningful alt text
Don’t repeat unnecessary information.
