Hi,

 

Correct answer to make alttext = " " , when image is not decorative.

 

<sly data-sly-test="${properties.bannerImagePath && properties.decorative}">
   <img src="${properties.bannerImagePath}" class="bg-img hide-img-mobile"/>
</sly>
<sly data-sly-test="${properties.bannerImagePath && !properties.decorative}"> 
   <sly data-sly-test.blankSpace="${properties.bannerimagealttext}"><img src="${properties.bannerImagePath}" alt="${properties.bannerimagealttext}" class="bg-img hide-img-mobile"/></sly>
   <sly data-sly-test="${!blankSpace}"><img src="${properties.bannerImagePath}" alt=" " class="bg-img hide-img-mobile"/></sly>				
</sly>

Hi @naveen_27_05 

For Decorative Images( Images which dont need Alt text since they are used for decorative purpose which means they will ignored by assistive technology for ADA purpose). Now i am not clear why you want to add ALT text for a Decorative Image. In short Alt text is supposed to be blank/empty for decorative image.

Hi Rajashankar,

 

Yes, I have created For Decorative image if image is decorative alt text is not required I agree but when image is not decorative when we author alt text with value I am getting alttext = "value" if I author with blank space in alt text that is not working. output is not coming like alttext=" ".

 

Thanks.

Hi @naveen_27_05 

Would you like to try this?

"${image.alt ? image.alt : ' '}"
