WCAG: 4.1.2: Buttons must have discernible text

Buttons must have discernible text that clearly describes the destination, purpose, function, or action for screen reader users.

The input-button-name rule separates functionality from the button-name rule to ensure that input buttons have discernible text; advise relevant to input button names was incorrect for button elements.

Screen reader users are not able to discern the purpose of button that has no accessible name.

Screen reader users cannot understand the purpose of an image without a discernable and accessible textual name. A title for an image may provide only advisory information about the image itself. Unnamed actionable graphic images such as buttons have no clear description of the destination, purpose, function or action for the non-text content when it is intended to be used as a control.
