Event description
Do you know how to write good alt text? Learn the basics, best practices and advanced techniques for creating accessible images.

About this Event

Creating accessible images is both a science and an art. The science reveals when you need alternative text and the techniques to use. The art is crafting alt text that helps screen reader users connect and engage. Learn both from Knowbility’s accessibility experts!

Our accessibility analyst Emily Lewis will teach the foundation of accessible images. She'll dive into WCAG requirements, best practices and techniques for simple vs. complex images.

You’ll also learn about the user experience from our communications specialist Anthony Vasquez. He will demonstrate examples of “bad” alt text and explain the impact on screen reader users.

In celebration of the 35th anniversary of the screen reader, the cost of this webinar is just $35!
