Web accessibility is hard
We’ve all seen mismatched or missing alt text that a website manager has been meaning to fix for ages. “Picture,” “image,” and “graphic” are the ones that really grind our gears and those of any website visitor. Because, as it may be extremely difficult to find out, people with visual disabilities often use assistive technologies in order to access digital spaces. And these assistive technologies actually inform users of an image by default. So, adding alt text that includes words such as “image” is really repetitive – and annoying – for people that visit these sites.
You and your customers deserve better
Small details like this are often locked up in an ivory tower and overlooked by overworked business owners that are doing their best to serve their customers. You shouldn’t have to slay a dragon to do what’s right. You deserve to rest easy knowing the platform that you use to communicate with your customers is well-crafted and available to everyone.
