Moodle Accessibility – Tip #8: Images

#8 Image Basics


When posting images, include an alt-image tag to help students with visual impairments. You can set an alt-image tag when posting images by filling out the Image description box. An alt-image tag should convey enough information so that a user can understand what the image is meant to convey without being overly wordy.

This website has some great information on creating image tags.
