Re: [orca-list] Image without empty alt should be ignored by Orca

Hi Alex.

I personally think Gecko should not be exposing this image rather than
making every AT special-case it. That said, I'm now handling that in
Orca master.

Dear all,

An user accessibility expert (in CC) tells me that image with an empty
alt should be ignored by Orca.

As I understand this behavior is in the ARIA specifications.

I've tested on Debian Sid with Firefox 52 and 54 with the latest Orca
from master.

I've written a simple HTML page to help you to test :

Steps to reproduce :

1) Open the page in Firefox

2) Read the page with Orca

Result : Orca announced "image" when It encounters the image with the
empty alt

Expected result : Orca should skip this image

Best regards.
