      Description

      According to a recent accessibility scan that we have acquired, some screen readers can't make sense of images without alt text in a link element.

      Link A elements labelled with a TITLE attribute, and only containing an image don't work in:

      • WindowEyes 8.4 with IE11 (the link HREF is read instead)
      • VoiceOver on OSX 10.9 (the image filename is read instead)

      Link A elements labelled with a ARIA-LABELLEDBY attribute, and only containing an image don't work in:

      • NVDA 2014.1 with IE11 (the link HREF is read before the ARIA label)
      • JAWS 15 with IE11 (the image filename is read instead)
      • WindowEyes 8.4 with IE11 (when tabbing the ARIA label is spoken, when reading the link HREF is spoken)
      • VoiceOver on OSX 10.9 (the image filename is read instead)
      • SaToGo 3.4 with IE11 (reads blank link text)
