Descriptive Text for Media

For Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn messages you can add descriptive (alt) text when publishing images so audiences with vision disabilities can access your content. 

Note: Sprout only supports descriptive text for single image posts on LinkedIn. However, descriptive text is supported for multi-image posts for Facebook and Twitter.

To add descriptive (alt) text to an image:

  1. Navigate to Compose.
  2. Select the Twitter, Facebook and/or LinkedIn profile you want to publish a message to.
  3. Add the image you want to include along with your message.
  4. Click Screen_Shot_2020-07-14_at_9.32.57_AM.png for the image you attached.
  5. Click Add Descriptive Text. The Edit Descriptive Text popup opens.
  6. Enter a description of the image, up to 1000 characters for Twitter and Facebook and 256 characters for LinkedIn.
  7. Click Save.
