Short note on use of alt=”” and the title attribute | The Paciello Group – Your Accessibility Partner (WCAG 2.0/508 audits, VPAT, usability and accessible user experience)
Sometimes you have an image that is only presentational but included with an
<img> element. In such cases, instead of not providing an
alt-attribute at all (which causes screenreaders to assume an alternative text from the file name), you can add an empty
alt="" attribute and screen readers will omit the element.
