      Hey TV,

      Do you use the BGT Report Writer or do you do it manually? The Report
      Writer automagically inputs an alternate text as "IMAGE [X]", was it
      mistakenly deleted?

          Yes, the report writer does that, but unless your photo file name is
          meaningful, it does not accomplish the purpose of an alt tag, which is
          to provide information to those who cannot see the image, whether
          because they are blind (using a screenreader) or they have turned off
          graphics on a slower or mobile internet connection. Among other things,
          it's a matter of accessibility, and not that hard to comply with.

          My 2 cents.
