Accessibility Checkpoint WCAG 2 H2


Using ALT text which duplicates link text in the same link or the following link results in screen readers stuttering as the same text is read out twice.


Use ALT=” when the image is part of a link containing text, or change the redundant ALT text if the links are separate.

Applicable Standards
