VoiceThread Docs / Universal / Editing / Adding alt text to a slide

To add alt text to a slide in your VoiceThread Universal:

  1. Go to the Edit page.
  2. Find the slide you want to describe.
  3. Click on the “Edit slide” button. Visually this looks like pencil icon in the bottom-left corner of that slide thumbnail.
  4. Enter your text into the slide description field. It will be labeled differently for each type of slide:
  • Image or document slide: “Slide description or text preview”
  • Audio slide: “Audio Recap”
  • Video slide: “Video Description”
  1. Save.

Alt text will be read by a screen reader, but it will not be visible on the page.
