Does the alt text avoid repeating text next to it?


Ensure that we’re not repeating content unnecessarily in SVG titles or image alt text so we don’t confuse or annoy people using screen readers.

Why this matters

See Writing for Screen Readers for more details on why we don’t repeat ourselves.

How to test

Manual testing

During draft: review the content in the order it will be read by a screen reader and check for content that will be unnecessarily repetitive.

Screen reader testing

Listen to the page in the QA region on a screen reader to ensure that the content doesn’t repeat itself.
