3 tips for articles and page content that contain images.

  • If images aren't decorative, they need to have alternative text. This text should be about tweet length (120 characters), describing the image. This information is read to users visiting your website using a screenreader.
  • If the description for the image needs to be longer than 120 characters, it should be displayed using the Inline Text component.
  • There should be a high contrast between the background of the page and the image.
