Accessibility

In order to ensure your content is as accessible to all users as possible, the mini-spotlight content item allows you to add an 'alt' description for each spotlight image within the content item (instead of in the Media Library).

Image 'alt' descriptions should convey the meaning of the image to users who cannot see or see well and are using a screen reader to navigate your website.
