When our local school district shared crucial news about school breakfast and lunch meals for students during the Michigan school shutdown, they shared the information in a text image.

I said I knew they wanted to make their content available to everyone. And I explained that images of text aren’t accessible to people who are blind or use assistive technology.

But a short time later, I noticed the school district added the text adjacent to the image on their breakfast and lunch news page.

Many text images are sharing information about the coronavirus pandemic, with useful updates for the community or steps you as an individual can take to stay safe.

And the images contain so much text that it’s impossible to add alternative text to the image itself, due to restrictions of the social media channel.

When you share images of text, whether on social media or your website, you need to provide alternative text so the content is available for everyone.
