Re: CSS background image: MS A11y Insights for Web question

Related question:

For other elements in my site, the Accessibility plugin is saying:

Image type: CSS background-image
Coded as: Meaningful
Accessible name: <snipped for brevity>

I have no clue why some elements with background images are getting
marked as meaningful with an accessible name and others are coming up
as "no value".

I'd like to understand how to control this better. Additionally, is
this going to affect screen readers?

Let me know if I can provide more information.

Thank you!
