Easy Image Alternate Text

Description

The Easy Image Alternate Text WordPress plugin automatically generates alternate text for images as they are uploaded to your website. Includes on demand options on the various Media Library screens so alt text can be detected as images are edited and inserted into content. Easy Image Alternate Text uses the Microsoft’s Cognitive Services Computer Vision API to look up alternate text so an API key and endpoint url are required in order to use this plugin. Use of the API requires a Microsoft account with credit card on file to charge for usage. [Azure Usage Rates] (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/cognitive-services/)

The Computer Vision API’s algorithms analyze the content found in an image and generates complete sentences of human readable language describing what is found in the image.

I'm a computer engineer and this plugin is a false advertisement. It isn't free, you have to pay for Azure subscription. It's not an easy setup, very complex.
