      Description

      Description

      There is a requirement to have an option to specify alternative text for images added to a certificate. While this may not be important for decorative images, this is an accessibility issue in the case of images of text such as logos in order for screen readers to be able to describe the contents of the certificate.

      User case

      We need to add a logo to a certificate. In our case, the logo contains text however, even if it does not, alternative text should still describe the image, especially if the certificate is being issued on behalf of an organization. Another example might be certificate seals.

      Workaround

      To work around the issue, we currently need to add text to the certificate in a very tiny font and then cover it with the logo - which is not ideal.
