Text shown on back of alt text card is given below.

Good ALT TEXT enables you to share the intended contextualized message of your image with a broader audience, including those who can’t see the image. Poor or missing alt text does not convey the meaning of the image. A joint effort by the Accessible Content Working Group, Technology Accessibility Program, ACCESSIBILITY.WFU.EDU.


A red stripe next to the word BAD on a poorly contrasting background, yellow stripe next to the word BETTER on a better contrasting background, green stripe next to the word BEST in high contrast to its white background.

Good COLOR CONTRAST helps you improve text legibility for your audience, including those with low vision or color deficiency. Ensure sufficient contrast between your foreground and background.
