Non-text content is for example an image, an icon, a video, an audio, an infographic or an animation. All visual or auditory content that’s not provided as readable (HTML) text in the web page.
So: provide an alt attribute on an image, subtitles for video and transcriptions for audio, a CAPTCHA, an infographic or an animation.
