Adding Alt Text to Images
LinkedIn makes adding alt text to images very simple and intuitive. When you add a photo, the Add Alt Text link appears. There is no need to change any settings. It’s simple and intuitive!
Once you select Add Alt Text, you see a box where you can add your Alternative Text and it gives a nice explanation as well. “By adding alternative text that describes the content of your photo, you are making your image more accessible.” There’s also a nice explanation of what to type there. It reads, “Text describing what’s in the photo.”
You can add captions to videos you upload to LinkedIn by uploading a caption file (.srt file) that you create outside of LinkedIn. See Additional Resources for assistance with this.
