Alternative Text is a descriptive attribute that you can associate with images. It is meant to serve the same purpose by conveying the same information as the image in situations where the image is not available to the reader, or if the reader is visually impaired and is using a screen reader.
If you have already inserted a photo into your body of text, you can add or edit the Alt Text by simply doing the following:
2. Select (or highlight) the photo you want to edit, and choose the Add Media button at the top of the text editor.
3. You will then see a window prompting you too add Alternate Text, as well as a Title, to the image.
4. When you are satisfied with the changes made, click.
NOTE: The Title text is made visible when users hover over the image. Whatever you use as a Title will pop up and be visible to the user.
If you have already added a photo to your Media Gallery and wish to add Alt Text, you can:
3. The editing form will appear, and you will see a section titled “Alt Text”.
4. Once you enter the desired Alt Text, click at the bottom of the page.

2. Either search for the desired file, or scroll through the list until you find the desired image you want to edit.
3. Click the "Edit" button for the desired image at the right.
4. A new window will then appear, and you will be asked to fill in the file information including the “Alt Text”.
