Event Details

This event took place on Thursday, November 3 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM Central Time

Spend an hour with Bojana Coklyat discussing what Alt Text is, tips for writing it, and the artistry involved. Capturing the important elements of an image can be challenging, especially when describing people in photos and identifying the “purpose” of the picture. Bring your questions and join us for some Alt Text practice to put our skills to the test!

CCAC Lunch & Learns are informal discussion forums open to the community. CCAC Steering Committee members facilitate sessions, and we encourage attendees to participate in open dialogue.
