Alt Text: Everything you need to know beyond just "99 Red Balloons"

Images, graphics, and charts are often incredibly important elements in your documents, and that makes it all the more important to make them accessible.

We love to include images on our websites and digital assets. Images support and add context to our information and concepts. Media, especially social media, include images for conversions; having images on posts leads to a higher clickthrough rate and ROI (return on investment).

Learn the art of writing effective alt-text. Never struggle with accessible images and graphs again! Let's apply best practices on imagery from the 80s music scene. From 99 Red Balloons shaking us all night long, to Burning Down the House we don’t want to leave any of our users behind.
