When adding images to webpages and documents, you need to consider those who are blind, are color blind, have trouble with contrast, and use screen readers. All images need to have alt text or a written description included. Alt text helps describe the picture in the event that the picture doesn't load or the user has a visual impairment.
Adding Alt Text to an Image
How to add alt text to an image:
- Switch into edit mode in Isidore so that the html/WYSIWYG editor is available.
- Right-click on the image you want to add alt text to and select Image Properties.
- In the "Alternative Text" box, type in a brief description of what the image shows. Consider what the image is conveying. For example, if it's a right-facing arrow, considering adding "Right-facing arrow indicating "next" or "forward" as the alternative text.
- Click on OK.
- Save your changes.
