Alternative text serves several functions: It is read by screen readers in place of images allowing the content and function of the image to be accessible to those with visual or certain cognitive disabilities. It is displayed in place of the image in browsers if the image file is not loaded or when the user has chosen not to view images.

The key principle is that computers and screen readers cannot analyze an image and determine what the image presents. HTML5 accessibility. ARIA in HTML.

Introduction WAI-ARIA, the Accessible Rich Internet Applications Suite, defines a way to make Web content and Web applications more accessible to people with disabilities. It especially helps with dynamic content and advanced user interface controls developed with Ajax, HTML, JavaScript, and related technologies. Currently certain functionality used in Web sites is not available to some users with disabilities, especially people who rely on screen readers and people who cannot use a mouse.

This page describes the problems that WAI-ARIA addresses, and introduces the WAI-ARIA suite of technical documents. Making Ajax and Related Technologies Accessible. ARIA - Accessibilité.

The intended use is when an element is used to change the look of the page but does not have all the functional, interactive, or structural relevance implied by the element type, or may be used to provide for an accessible fallback in older browsers that do not support WAI-ARIA. Example use cases: An element whose content is completely presentational (like a spacer image, decorative graphic, or clearing element);An image that is in a container with the img role and where the full text alternative is available and is marked up with aria-labelledby and (if needed) aria-describedby;An element used as an additional markup "hook" for CSS; orA layout table and/or any of its associated rows, cells, etc.
