Image Alt Text

Description

The “Image Alt Text” plugin is a simple yet powerful tool that allows website owners and content creators to easily edit the alt tags for images on their website. Alt tags, or alternative text descriptions, are important for both accessibility and search engine optimization (SEO) purposes, as they provide a textual description of an image for users who are visually impaired or for search engines that cannot interpret images.

With this plugin, website owner and admins can easily edit alt tags for all images on their website directly from the Plugin Menu. The plugin provides a user-friendly interface that allows users to quickly update alt tags for individual images or copy alt text for all missing images. Additionally, the plugin includes a feature to generate alt tags based on the image file name, saving users time and effort.

My client had uploaded over 1,000 images to her new WooCommerce website. I had code on the site that would, at least, use the filename as the alt text, but that really was only suitable for about 10% of the images. The rest had alt text like “img0001” and needed to be edited. The interface provided by this plugin allowed her to, bit by bit, efficiently edit all of these tags in a logical and sequential way.

Like your plugin – it does a great job as far as it goes. It updates the media library really well and it’s simple enough for a regular user. If you have already used the image I’m not finding that it updates the alt where the image has been used so I instruct my users to go back and reselect the image after the alt tag has been added in order to fix it. I could be wrong about this. I am also thinking that I have yet to see anyone fix an alt tag after an image has been selected, except manually.
