1) 11.1 is repeated twice. 

2) Logos.
>From our own testing we’ve found it useful to inform readers that they are
viewing a logo. In your example that just says PIP CO, a blind user would not
know if it’s a photo of a pipco, a photo of PIP CO’s building, or a logo. We’ve
found that “Logo: PIP CO” works well in our studies.

3) Distinguishing between illustrations and photographs. 
To us who are sighted, there’s a big difference between seeing a photograph of
something vs. an artist’s illustration. For example, I have on my desk right
now 2 books for identifying birds. One is “Birds of North America” with
illustrations, the other is “The Audubon Society’s Field Guide to North
American Birds” with photos.

In the illustrated version, the artist can make small bird markings more
visible to the reader so that 2 similar birds in a family can be easily
distinguished. But in the photographed version, you see the bird in its correct
color and habitat, but you might not easily see a distinguishing marking.

Essentially, a photo is the “real deal” and an illustration is an artist’s

So it might be helpful to say: “Photo: American Bald Eagle” and “Illustration:
American Bald Eagle.”
