Five kinds of ‘alt’ text

This discussion of alt-text, on the website of a London-based usability consulting and usability training company, offers that there are five different classes of "alt" text. Each of 5 different types of images requires a different approach to writing the ‘alt’ attribute. Some comments were solicited (from February - April 2011) and can be reviewed, however the "comments section" is now closed to further input.

"We must continue to embrace diversity and reject discrimination in all its forms, and insist on equality of opportunity and accessibility for all. Let our efforts remind us that when we work together, we can build a world free of unnecessary barriers and include every member of our international community."

President Barak Obama, International Day of Persons with Disabilities, December 3, 2009
