Banner Image: Internal
This banner image content type is designed to be used on internal pages and will always appear at the top of the page.
The Internal page banner can be used on any internal page within your site, however, it should be reserved for pages where a banner image is appropriate (not just as page filler). The Banner Image: Internal can be placed anywhere in your list of content, it will always default to the top of the page.
Any text contained in the banner image should be used as the image description in the Media Library. Failure to do so will cause the accessibility of your page to suffer and your banner image may be removed. Text on the image is not read by a screen reader and, if it is low contrast, it will be difficult for those with limited (or even perfect) eye sight to read. Be mindful of your audience and remember we are required by law to produce accessible webpages.
