Hi, is there a way to have empty alt attributes in images?
This is for accessibility purposes. Images that only have a visual value should have an empty alt attribute. That way, screen readers skip the image.
- If you don’t put an alt attribute, then screen readers read out the entire image URL (horrible experience)
- If you put a space in the alt field, Webflow adds a space, but that would be read by a screen reader too (not skip it.)
- if you put “” … then Webflow makes the alt attribute “”"" (lol) Which screen readers will read.
It would be great if there was a checkmark to set the alt as empty.
There’s a similar post but the answer was not great.
The person helping didn’t understand why the need for an empty tag:
