    Displays a source attribution in block capitals in the bottom-right of the parent element. This implementation is primarily intended for use alongside images.


    npm install @bbc/psammead-copyright


    Argument Type Required Default Example
    No props.


    Commonly used alongside psammead-figure, psammead-image and psammead-image-placeholder. Can also pass in psammead-visually-hidden-text in order to announce the component.

    const WrapperComponent = ({ alt, ratio, src, width }) => (
        <ImagePlaceholder ratio={ratio}>
          <Image alt={alt} src={src} width={width} />
            <VisuallyHiddenText>Image source, </VisuallyHiddenText>

    When to use this component

    This component is intended to be used alongside images or diagrams contained within a Figure component.

    When not to use this component

    This component should not be used arbitrarily to represent source attribution across the page. As above, it is not intended to be used outside the Figure component. The accessibility text would be incorrect and potentially confusing.

    Do not use this component if you know the source attribution is already covered by another copyright disclosure on the page.

    Accessibility notes

    The default styling of this component is intended to comply with WCAG colour contrast standards.

    The VisuallyHiddenText component can be used as a child of Copyright to add additional context to screen reader users. An example of this can be found in our storybook

    This component uses aria role text, to stop 'text splitting' that is observed when using VoiceOver on iPhone and therefore improve the screen reader UX. Without this, the image source element is 2 swipes on VoiceOver (left to right), one for 'Image source' and one for the actual source such as 'Getty images'.
