DQM Checkpoints and Standards

Checkpoints - Graphical form buttons should have "alt" text

Why is this important?

A blind user cannot see a graphical form button and they would be reliant on a screen reader to interpret what the form button does. Adding an alt attribute provides the description on what the button does. 

How can I resolve this issue?


Add an alt attribute describing the purpose of the button 

What topics do this checkpoint affect?

  • Accessibility (WCAG 2 Level A, 1.1.1)
  • Legal

Can you explain how this checkpoint works?

The checkpoint examines the page and reports if any <input type="image"> element does not have alternative text.
