Background Alt Tag


From: Diane_Bader@dot.ca.gov

One of our webmasters here wants to use a background on her page that has a
picture imbedded on it. One reason is that it loads faster. Is there such
a thing as an alt tag for the background on a website?? How would it be
made accessible? or is this something that cannot be made accessible? I
know that a alt tag can go on a .jpg, etc.

Thanks for your help!
