TITLE text is displayed in the place of ALT text for both of these occurances. If no TITLE text is available, no text is displayed (regardless of ALT text specificity). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to any website (e.g. www.cnn.com, espn.go.com, etc.) 2. Mouse-over any image with ALT text. 3. No text will appear. Actual Results: No text appeared on performing mouse-over operations, except for images with TITLE text, rather than ALT text. Expected Results: ALT text should have been displayed either as tool-tip or as on-screen text when image is not available. ALT text display is required for WAI Level 1 support.
No ALT text via tooltip is correct behavior and one of the most duplicated bugs ever (bug 25537). Please look for duplicates before filing bug reports. No ALT text for blocked images is by design, and also a duplicate report. See bug 180620 comment 24. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 25537 ***
