Does Not Support

Though a form field exists for authors to specify an “Alt Tag” for each image slice, authors are not prompted to fill out this form field.

Additionally, the product provides a function for content authors to proof images with Color Universal Design and ensure that graphical information is conveyed accurately to people with various types of color vision impairment, including people with color blindness.  However, this function depends on authors’ ability to determine an appropriate level of color contrast, and does not provide a method to measure text against the strict WCAG standards.

504.4 Templates
