      Description

      Issue
      Alt text - the alt text for each user's picture in the online user's block is picture of user's full name then a link next to it is the user's full name. The image is there for a visual representation that has no context to a non sighted user. The alt text for these images should be empty so a screen read just reads who is online by the link in the name.

      Standard Level
      WCAG 2 1.1.1 (A) http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/text-equiv-all.html
