How does UDOIT handle alt text that is a filename?

Hi folks!  I am putting together a simple spreadsheet for my team comparing the main features of UDOIT with the Accessibility Checker features in the Canvas Design Tool.  I know that UDOIT will flag missing alt text, but will it also flag alt text that has .jpg etc?  I haven't been able to find this in the various demos and online discussions.  This is an important feature since Canvas uses the image file name as the default alt text.

Thanks in advance or any insight!

I apologize for not responding sooner.  Apparently my notifications aren't set up properly.  Anyway, the ALT text error will trigger in three situations:

  • blank ALT text
  • ALT text that is longer than 100 characters
  • ALT text that follows the format of an image file name (*.jpg, *.png, etc.)

I hope that answers your question!

If you're participating in this discussion, you'll definitely want to RSVP to the CanvasLIVE event UDOIT Installation which is coming up this Monday, December 5, 2016. RSVP “yes” if you will be there--and if you’re interested, but your schedule doesn’t allow you to attend in real time, RSVP "no" or "maybe" to receive all event updates. Your RSVP ensures that you will receive a notification should the event be cancelled or changed.
