Alt-Text- How it works

As part of my research into answering a question raised by my tutor in my Assignment 5 results regarding how visually impaired people see digital images, I have been looking to how best describe the use of Alt Text.

It was during today’s “International Day of disabled persons” that Dr Amy Kavanagh posed a twitter link to the following page.

It contains a brief but precise description of how it is used within the boundaries of social media. The Alt-Text also works as part of an HTML flag for webpages and I have been using it to add brief descriptions to each of the images I post in the learning log.

It is through Alt-Text that visually impaired people can see images digitally.
