What is Alt-Text?
"Alt-Text" is abbreviated for "Alternative Text" or text that can be used to describe an image to someone who cannot see the image on the screen. Alternative Text also allows Google and other search engines to become aware of what the images on your page consist of, and thus if an individual is searching for a specific graphic, they can find it through a search engine.
Where is the Alt-Text Field?
When uploading a photo to your Page Builder page, there is an "Alt-Text" field next to where you uploaded the photo.
Add your Alt-text into the field next to the photo. Do your best to describe it properly without the description being too long. Those with screen-readers have to listen to whatever you write. Also, remember, if there is any text in the image, re-state ALL of the text into the alt-text field.
- Write text that briefly, yet specifically describes the image.
- Provide a description to those who are blind as they use a screen-reader.
- Treat it like a tweet. Keep it brief.
- Re-state ALL of the text into the alt-text field if there is text within the image.
- Writing a paragraph about the image.
- Writing a vague description.
