What is image alt text?

Alt text is a short description of an image that will help people with visual impairment. This label is not visible in your typeform, but screen readers will read it out loud.

You can use the Alt text field in question settings to manually describe the picture you’re adding in maximum 125 characters.

Tips! If you’re adding an image from the Unsplash library or an icon from the Noun Project the description of the image will appear automatically in the Alt text field.
