Hi! I understand that images used for links need the link ‘action’ in the alt text, letting SR users know what the link does when clicked.
How should I handle this when the same image is used in a few different places, but with different uses (for example, once as an illustrative image on a blog post, and the same image as the thumbnail product shot on a shop page)? Would this require multiple uploads to the media library of the same image but with different alt-text each time?
And how does wordpress handle using the main image for a blog post as both the header image on the post itself (not requiring a description of link destination) and the thumbnail on the posts page (presumably requiring a description of the link destination, i.e. the full blog post)?
Hopefully this makes sense, and a huge thanks in advance,
