When to use Alt Tags on Images

Adding alt tags to all images sometimes is not the correct solution for accessibility.     W3.org provides a tutorial on Image Concepts that helps explain the different types of images on a website and how they should be marked up for those who use a screen reader.

Sometimes an image doesn’t convey any needed details for a screen reader user, they are purely a decorative image.

Use W3.org decision tree to help you decide if the alt tag should contain a description or marked as a decorative image.
