    What's it called

    When a caption appears if you hover over a web image? I suspect that good practice says they should be there but are school websites supposed to have them?

    Yes, the reason they are supposed to be there (and descriptive) is for accessability software like screen readers so that the visually impared can still get the information.

    There are even laws about it UK Law for websites
