A container for a collection of elements that form an image.

An img can contain captions and descriptive text as well as multiple image files that, when viewed together, give the impression of a single image.

An img represents a single graphic within a document, whether or not it is formed by a collection of image objects. In order for elements with a role of img to be perceivable, authors must provide alternative text or a label determined by the accessible name calculation.


<div role="img" alt="alternate text for the group">
<div>Elements of the group</div>
