Please note that some organizations have the policy to leave alt text as blank when including an image within a webpage that is for decorative purposes. This check will flag any image where the alt text is set to empty quotes. Per WCAG at the time of creating this documentation, this is the appropriate markup for a decorative image.

How to set it up:

  • Use XPath

  • Set policy to “Flag pages that contain" the XPath:

//img[@alt and @alt=""]
