      Description

      The image next to the "Expand All" (or "Collapse All" depending on the state) control to either expand or collapse all of the tabs on the syllabus page does not provide an alternative text attribute. As such, screen reader users will have no way of discerning the image's purpose.

      <img src="/library/image/silk/arrow_out.png">

      Developers must provide alternative attributes for all images in order to ensure that screen reader users are able to discern the purpose of the image. As this image is purely decorative the element can be assigned a null alt value as shown below:

      <img alt="" src="/library/image/silk/arrow_out.png">
