Tagging must represent semantic structure

Description

Best Practice Type: Manual Check

  2. Images that are invisible, purely decorative, do not convey meaning, or are completely redundant with text that is already on screen must be tagged as an artifact
  3. Redundant content like page headers and footers should be marked as artifacts
