Alternative-Text Writing

To meet the challenge of providing accessibility of academic and specifically STM textbooks to sight-impaired readers, Editage offers professional alt-text or alt-tag writing services to publishers. We work with some of the best native-speaking alt-text writers in the industry who also have deep technical knowledge of their subject area.

How it works

Titles are provided in PDF format along with Excel sheets containing extracted images and specific project guidelines including how images are to be categorized according to complexity.

  • Writing
    Writers gauge image complexity and accordingly write short and/or long alt-text and mention the complexity for each image in the Excel sheets
  • Review
    The alt-text is reviewed by senior writers to confirm that nothing is missed/repeated, project guidelines are adhered to, and that the language is error-free

The deliverable files are the Excel sheets with alt-text written against each image.
