When it comes to accessibility with images on the web, we are usually referring to the alt text. However, your images being fully accessible goes way beyond just making sure this attribute is present. What text gets put, or not put, inside of it depends greatly on the purpose of the image. This talk will takes a closer look at the different purposes an image can have and how that impacts the contents of its alt text as well as its level of accessibility. You will walk away from this talk with a greater understanding of how to better write alt text for your site's images, therefore improving accessibility in the process. This is a beginner friendly talk and all are welcome to attend!
