background If you use an iPhone, then you may be wondering what to write in the alt text field of an image. In order to make it as accessible as possible for users with different abilities, you should be as descriptive as possible. The alt text should describe what the image is about. For example, if the image shows a baseball field and a player hitting a ball, you would have to write “Fenway Park” and the player’s number 34.
The Alt attribute is used to describe images. This is particularly important if you’re using a photo of a person. It should describe the person’s race, gender, and other details about the image. If you’re using an image of a child, make sure to put a description of the child’s ethnicity in the alt text. However, you shouldn’t use the Alt attribute on images of people. This may be difficult for people who are not native English speakers, but it’s still important for accessibility.
