Accessible Guides Project

"I need that too."

"When you look at a web page, you see right away how it's divided and what's most important. I need that too." - Dave Simpson, programmer, musician and writer, who was blind from birth.

The alt text project

Hurray for Alexandrea Glenn and the Libraries interns!

They've inspected every tab of 970 guides for missing alt text. Where it was missing, they added it.

  • This makes us look good.
  • Except that, while the interns were adding alt text, we (staff) added 82 new guides largely without alt text.
