Earlier today I sent the below message to Saddleback Church. Rick Warren and the church have been in the news of late due to Warren’s hosting of interviews with the two men running for U.S. President.

I happen to be blind and browse the web with what’s known as a screen reader. I was reviewing your church’s web site as part of the focus it has obtained over the political coverage you are hosting with the presidential candidates.
I noticed that your web site fails to use alternative text for most images on your web pages. Alternative text allows screen readers to insert words instead of pictures.
Below is how your web pages currently read with a screen reader.
