It should work, it could be a bug.

Anyways top of that you can add a extraclientlibs to validate img alt and stop dialog submit.


(function ($, $document) {
    "use strict";
    $(document).on("click", ".cq-dialog-submit", function (e) {
var $inputEle = $('[name="./alt"]');
if($inputEle !== null || typeof $inputEle !== "undefined")
var altValue = $inputEle.find("input.coral-Textfield").val();
if(altValue === "")
return false;
