I’m sold. Most comprehensive and competent W3C techniques guide for the topic so far.

Only thing missing are references + more examples with ARIA properties as alternative. Example: “1.8 A purely decorative image that doesn't add any information “ or “ 2.3 Using an empty alt attribute alt="" ” to indicate decorative images using role=”presentation<http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria/roles#presentation>”.

Apologies, please use the following URL

I made a mistake in the update of the HTML5 reference and have fixed accordingly https://github.com/w3c/alt-techniques/commit/54c868254d49bac4ca1efa7d9907cc85bfa0a3cd

Hi all,

in an effort to break the inertia surrounding this document I have created a dated WD snapshot:


It incorporates Janina's requests:
removal of details/summary advice
update reference to pint to HTML /TR
I have added links to outstanding bugs with special reference to those about longdesc.
I also updated one example and closed the related bug [https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=25961], as I consider it wholly uncontroversial and an improvement on the current example.
I consider once this WD is published the group(s) should swiftly appoint new editor(s). I would suggest that any editors appointed have a good working knowledge of alt techniques.
It is my understanding that both Shane McCarron and David McDonald have volunteered and I personally have confidence that both of them working as a team would serve as excellent replacements.
