Re: webpage images with NVDA (was: Why does NVDA not find photos on this website?)

Each screen reader has a way of dealing with unlabeled images on the web. JAWS attempts to add an alt attribute automatically by giving the user a choice of reasonable defaults such as a filename. I don’t think NVDA has any reasonable default method for exposing images on websites. However, it’s worth a dev giving this thread feedback on the problem.

one further question: is there any reason why an image without an ALT tag is not showing up to NVDA as a graphic? I thought a non-tagged image just used to be spoken as "graphic" but it was still navigable with the g shorcut. Maybe I'm remembering incorrectly.
