      Description

      Decorative images should be either provided using CSS or with null alt attribute.  Liferay navigation menu icons have "page-icon" as alt text which creates a negative experience when using a screen reading program.

       

      1. Start a clean bundle
      2. At the Welcome page, select the cog to configure the page
      3. Click on Advanced
      4. Under the Icon section click select Change
      5. Click Select and upload a small image
      6. Click Done and Save
      7. On the Welcome page, right-click on the icon and inspect it

      Expected Result: the alt-text for the image should be null

      Actual Result: the alt-text for the image is "page-icon"
