Alternative Text For Images

  • All images require an alt attribute.
  • Using meaningful descriptive text. Describe the image briefly, but avoid the phrase 'image of' or 'graphic of'.

Heading Structure

  • Heading hierarchy is very important for readability, scanability, search engine optimization, and accessibility. 
  • When using multiple headings on a page, it is recommended to use them in numerical order. For example: heading 1, heading 2, heading 3 etc.
  • DO NOT mix the numerical order of headings. For example: Heading 2 followed by Heading 1.
