Would it also need to be a tabindex=”-1” to remove it from the navigation flow?

Hi Rodrigo

You only need the tabindex if it's an interactive element and do not want users to be able to tab to it.
Hope that helps.

Regards,
Oscar

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
