Alt Text Day

I take a yearly refresher course in information security, much like everyone else doing computer work around this area. This year, they released the course with a text supplement for people that couldn't use the website, including image captions that some poor technical writer had to invent for 508 accessibility compliance.

Why take the course when you can get the gist from reading the alt text of the briefing images?

  • Image Alt: Three unknown men sitting in chairs
  • Image Alt: Three criteria for an authorized recipient - "Eligibility" is a thumbs-up, "Requirement" is a "Need-to-Know" key on a keyboard, and "Agreement" is a signature on an NdA.
  • Image Alt: A collage of three classified documents, an American flag, and a face.
  • Image Alt: A collage of a man holding a clipboard and a checklist.
