Image (Alt Text) Descriptions
Here are a few things to guide you when writing alt text descriptions for images:
- Keep your descriptions between 8 and 80 characters. Any more than 80 characters would require a "d" link page.
- DO NOT identify the medium whether it is an image, logo, photograph, picture, button, poster, illustration, watercolor, painting, bar chart, etc. Do not write "Photo of..." in your description text.
- Describe the content of the image as if you are talking to someone on the telephone.
- Identify all prominent text in the image as it pertains to the meaning of the image. If an image says "Cerritos College" in it and it can be clearly seen, type "Cerritos College" for the description text.
