Importance of Accessible Images

Image without a title and description

What assistive tech, like a a screen reader, will provide to the person about the image

Why an image description matters
AEM uses the description for the alt attribute. Each image must have an alt attribute because without one, the content of an image will not be available to screen reader users.

How to fix an image's alt attribute
Go into the DAM, select the image, and click the Properties tab. Add an accurate and brief description and / or function of the image. While there add a title if one is missing.
