Figcapiton vs alt=""
Which is best to use from an accessibility point of view and that works best with screen readers? I have been looking, and I need help finding consistency. Some say do not use alt=" with a figcaption, and some say it is OK. WCAG standards do not speak to this.
There are times when attributions are needed for images. I have always used figcaption. This would be for decorative images. Is that acceptable?
