Responsive and Accessible Images

Class description

Images are an important part of the web. This lecture will give an overview on the considerations for accessible image and their alternative texts, but also take a look from a content strategist perspective on the ways that images can be presented in a responsive context. You will learn how to write good alt text, when longer descriptions are necessary, using resolution-independent images, and how to use different images in different responsive contexts for art direction.
