Writing Great Alt Text

Join the Accessibility Ambassadors for a presentation by Ambassador Kim Doberstein of OIT.

One of the first steps in making a digital item accessible is to ensure that each image has an alternative text. How do you know if the alternative text make sense? Is your alternative text making your digital item more or less accessible? In this presentation, we will discuss what makes a good alternative text.

This presentation will be valuable for accessibility beginners and veterans alike, so please join us!
