Tip #7 | Adding Meaningful Alt Text

Writing meaningul alt text is important. Just adding ‘image of __’ is not enough, the image needs to have a meaningful description of its contents. Remember that alt texts in Flash can be longer than in HTML, so we can add more details. Here are a few Alt Text guidelines that we go by:

  • Keep text short, avoid re-using words and combine sentences where possible.
  • Write in the present tense.
  • Describe the scene, the figures and the action. Describe any image details that are of importance to the scene.
  • Start an image with ‘Image of..’
  • Start an animation with ‘Animation of..’
  • Use foreground/ background references to describe a scene set-up.
  • Do not disclose any additional information that is not apparent visually. (For example, if an image shows a painting, then describe what this painting looks like instead of giving its official title.)
  • Include all text that is written in the image. (Text as art)
  • Include colors if they are of importance.
