Hi Rodrigo

For ARIA touch events, I'm not too sure sorry, hopefully someone else will jump-in with more ARIA experience.

Thanks.

Thanks Corey!

With a image, the alt="" will be enough, but, do you know if we have a tabindex="0" equivalente for touch events in ARIA?

Regards,
Rodrigo

Hi Rodrigo

Referencing an image within a CSS style will be ignored by a screen reader.

If the image is not being referenced in a CSS style, an empty alt will suffice but make sure you utilise the alt attribute (alt="") or the image file name may be read-out.

Thanks.

Dear Colleagues,

I'm new in accessibility, so, I'm sorry if my question is too basic. How can i ignore an element, for example, a image, in screen readers for mobile devices (VoiceOver or TalkBack). Sometimes we need to ignore element used just to style the page, so I need something similar tabindex="0" but for touch events.

Best regards,
Rodrigo
