This part of ISO/IEC 20071 applies to all static images that are used in any type of electronic document. It also applies to individual images within a slide show of electronic images.

NOTE While text alternatives can be implemented via various mechanisms in various types of electronic documents, the contents of this technical report are not dependent on the choice of implementation mechanism or of electronic document type.

This part of ISO/IEC 20071 does not apply to moving images (e.g. movies).

The guidance contained in this part of ISO/IEC 20071 is intended to be used by the person who creates content to be placed in an electronic document. There is no expectation that this person will have any additional expertise beyond understanding the contents of the document and why an image was chosen to be placed within the document.

While the main intent of the guidance within this part of ISO/IEC 20071 is the creation of text alternatives, the information identified in this guidance could be placed in the main document text, reducing the length of the resulting text alternatives. However, placing information in the main document text does not fully replace the function of having some text alternatives for each image.
