Informative Image Example: Data Chart
Informative Image Example
- The flow chart that shows the trend of a dummy stock quote is an image.
- Although alternative text, content of the alt attribute, informs the user what the image is about, it does not convey the same information the image carries.
- This issue is resolved by providing alternative access, formatted with text to be more widely accessible, to the information that is conveyed graphically in the image.
- This example is based on share price pages of nasdaq.com.
