Long Description: Screenshot Documentation for "Missing alternative text"

This screenshot shows the sidebar in explanation for "Missing alternative text". It reads:



Missing alternative text

What It Means

Image alternative text is not present.

Why It Matters

Each image must have an alt attribute. Without alternative text, the content of an image will not be available to screen reader users or when the image is unavailable.

How to Fix It

Add an alt attribute to the image. The attribute value should accurately and succinctly present the content and function of the image. If the content of the image is conveyed in the context or surroundings of the image, or if the image does not convey content or have a function, it should be given empty/null alternative text (alt="").

The Algorithm... in English

An image does not have an alt attribute.
