There are over 2.2 billion visually impaired people around the globe. A lot of these people use assistive technology such as screen readers to access the internet. While the screen readers can easily decipher the text content, it is difficult to comprehend images on the screen. Alternative text or Alt-text is used to describe the images on a website. This is an important aspect of web accessibility. Having an alternative text helps visually impaired users to better understand the nature or contents of an image.
One of our clients, a major K-12 publisher in the US, wanted to add alternative text to the images in their digital content. We helped them create alt-text and long descriptions, enabling them to deliver accessible eBooks to their students.
Highlights of the case study:
- Created alt-text and long descriptions for images and graphs
- Developed alt-text for complex Math equations using MathML
- Delivered high-quality output with quick turnaround time
- Helped the client save costs
