Alt Text

Alternative text (also known as Alt. text) is a short description or story about an image, which describes the image to those who would be unable to see it.

A video card's settings are shown with the video alt text field highlighted.

Alt. Text is important for those who are visually impaired, use assistive technologies when browsing the web, or those who turn off images, such as in areas with expensive or low internet bandwidth. Texas State strives to produce accessible websites, and Alt. text should always be included on every image
