  1. Add the appropriate alternate text* OR check the "This is a decorative image" option.
    * Every time you insert an image in a web page, you should ask yourself this question: What is the function is this image adding to this web page? If it is to make the page "pretty", you should check "This is a decorative image." If the image helps expand the content of the web page, then use the alternative text to let disabled users know what that function is for the web page. To learn more, visit our alternative text webpage.
