Have you come across any problem pages on the wiki? For example, there are some pages that use images without descriptions, such as this one: https://wiki.libraries.coop/doku.php?id ... rs-footers. Have you found any others? Can you share them here and we can discuss how to improve them?

I wanted to write a short post about putting alt tags at the screen shots that appear on the wiki. Generally, if there is a graphic of a screen shot, there should be an alt tag explaining what is contained in the screen shot. For example, if it is a screen shot of a document with the style sheet pain visible, the alt tag may say something like “microsoft word document with style pain visible on the left side of the screen”. The wiki has some topic where screen shots are used. Here is a link to an example of a topic with a screen shot.

I would recommend putting alt-text on the screenshots to know what it is and then put the example if it has text such as the layout of a list shown in the screenshot, underneath the graphic.
