How to add Alt Text to Your Images


Alt text is used to describe the appearance and function of an image on a page. Unlike caption, alt text is typically not visible but it is read by a screen reader (a device that reads website content and helps people with visual impairments understand what is happening on a webpage). There are many online resources to help you write great alt text.

Where to add Alt Text?

You can add customized alt text to the uploaded images. The alt text can be added to:


Here's the example on how you can add alt text to Accommodation Types. Follow the same process for all photo uploaded to your Cloudbeds Booking Engine.

  1. Inside the accommodation type, click the icon to edit the photo.
  1. Add the Alt text.
  2. Click Update.
  1. Then Save.

The Alt Text will be displayed on your booking engine and can be read by a screen reader.
