Huge thanks for the reply, that’s actually really helpful to have an understanding of why it’s not working, I can now go back to the author of the site and see if he is able to make the appropriate changes.
Thanks again for the help

I finally took a look at the html on the site. One of the things a developer should do is test their web site on more than one browser. Plus they should have individuals with different disabilities test the site. They probably didn’t think of how a screen reader picks up on text or graphics. The site is using what I think is an attribute I never saw before. I think the internet explorer recognize it and the other browsers do not. I would suggest to them to use the alt attribute. The code uses the alt attribute in other locations. Yet it sets the alt attribute associated value to blank. A screen reader needs the alt attribute to have text.
I hop;e this helps.
