Image Alternative Description (Alt) Text and Title Text Descriptions
Below are a few general guidelines to curating alt/title text descriptions:
- Describe the image in 10-60 characters. For example, if it is a student graduating simply say "student accepting diploma".
- Do not write "Photo of...", "Image of...", "Picture of...", "...logo", etc... in your description text as screen reading softwares already identify an image aloud to the user.
- If an image is decorative and is not meant to convey content on the page then leave the description field blank.
