I've edited my site upstatehandyman attempting to become ADA compliant using the wave accessibility tool for chrome. However there appears to be a single image 1x1 that I don't have access to. Is there any way you could give that image an alt attribute? Apparently it messes with screen readers if images don't have alt tags. I assume the image is for tracking stats or something similar.

That image is the last error the tool flags.

According to the WAVE tool:
How to Fix It
Add an alt attribute to the image. The attribute value should accurately and succinctly present the content and function of the image. If the content of the image is conveyed in the context or surroundings of the image, or if the image does not convey content or have a function, it should be given empty/null alternative text (alt="").

Hello,

I can attempt to locate the image. Do you know what page the image is on?

I'm working on the index page at this time but apparently it's on all the pages. The screen shot included is of the index page with everything I could remove then published.

I apologize Steve, I inspected the sites pages and am not able to locate the image either.

I guess it's nothing. I checked the coding as the WAVE tool puts an icon next to the area it pertains to. It puts warnings, alerts, features, etc. right next to the code in question.  But the code didn't contain any alerts or warnings. A few yellow flags but no red ones that would cause problems. I can live with the yellow ones. Thanks for your help on this. I appreciate it.
