Writing alt tags (alternative text) for visual only information (images, maps, charts, graphs, etc) can be challenging.
UM principles for creating alternative text include:
- Focus on the purpose for the inclusion of the visual information in the text.
- Write concise descriptions that move from general info to specifics.
- Consider context and objectivity when determining what to write.
- Always consider your audience in tone and language.
