What does this mean?

An <img> element inside a link must not specify alternative text that duplicates the content of a text link inside or beside it.

For example, this code should be avoided:

<a href="/apple">
    <img src="apple.png" alt="Apple">
    Apple
</a>

Accessible technologies will tend to see this as "Apple Apple". The correct behaviour is to specify either a null (empty) alt attribute:

<a href="/apple">
    <img src="apple.png" alt="">
    Apple
</a>

or to hide the image via aria-hidden:

<a href="/apple">
    <img src="apple.png" aria-hidden="true">
    Apple
</a>
