An Alt-Opinion On Alt-Text

An Alt-Opinon On Alt-Text.

In this conversation, Steven Scott and Shaun Preece discuss the use of alt text for images. Steven argues that relying on individuals to add alt text may not be effective, as they may not have the knowledge or inclination to provide detailed descriptions.

Instead, he suggests using AI image description services, which can provide more detailed and accurate descriptions. Shaun counters that alt text is still important, as it provides a basic level of accessibility and allows individuals to decide if they want to use AI tools for further exploration.

They also touch on the importance of accessible websites and the limitations of accessibility overlays.
