What it is
Images for Alt is a Chrome extension that generates descriptive alt tags for HTML images. It also allows users to replace images with text, or remove images from the page.
How we made it
We leverage Microsoft’s computer vision API and its nifty caption creator.
Why we made it
Let’s say we have an image embedded on a website like this one:
The HTML might look something like this:
<img src="pug.jpg" alt="dog">
But with our Chrome extension, it will be updated to be this:
<img src="pug.jpg" alt="Original caption: dog; Generated caption: a dog looking at the camera">
