Image Alternative Description (Alt) Text and Title Text Descriptions


Below are a few general guidelines to curating alt/title text descriptions:

  1. Describe the image in 10-60 characters. For example, if it is a student graduating simply say "student accepting diploma".
  2. 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.
  3. If an image is decorative and is not meant to convey content on the page then leave the description field blank.
