$2.5 Million Doesn’t Buy Alt Text

TechFlash is one of the blogs I read to stay current on happenings in the technology sector. An article talking about a $2.5 million site redesign for WhitePages.com caught my attention this afternoon.

 

Firing up my web browser of choice I navigated to the site. And wonder of wonder for $2.5 million I see the first link showing up to my screen reader as “images/AE5”. As anyone familiar with web accessibility can guess, this is a link without any alternative text. I guess $2.5 million isn’t enough to buy you a bit of accessibility these days.
