Event WAG December 2018 Webinar: Writing Effective Alternative Text for Images
Type Webinar
Description Writing alt text can sometimes be a complex and subjective experience. This webinar will walk you through the process of deciding when and how to apply descriptive (alt) text to images in documents and online content. How much information is too much, and what kinds of details should be included to provide access to photographs, charts, infographics, and diagrams? We'll provide templates you can refer to when needing to describe an image. You will be learning the best practices for crafting meaningful and concise alt text so your documents and websites are accessible to everyone.
