Alt tag on background images?

HI, everyone, I hope someone knows this but how do I add the Alt tag on background images???

it’s simple when the image is on the block but the alt tag slot doesn’t appear when its a background image??

thanks everybody

Hi @Ofel1

In short, bg images are added as css & don’t have any alt tag properties. That’s just the html rules we all have to play by. If a client is dead set on having the alt tag then you’ll have to use img tag instead.

Thankfully concerning accessibility much of it is quite encompassing, it has to be.

So its somewhat possible with WAI-ARIA

See: “When Providing Alternate Text for the CSS Image, There Are Number of Considerations“


@norm but such accessibility is not open to implement in Blocs currently, perhaps it could be?

thanks guys for your feedback
