This interface is used for a representation of images like icons on buttons. IAccessibleImage only needs to be implemented in certain situations. Some examples are:

  1. The accessible name and description() are not enough to fully describe the image, for example when the accessible description() is used to define the behavior of an actionable image and the image itself conveys semantically significant information.
  2. The user can edit the content that includes an image and therefore the user needs to be able to review the image's position.
