This is by far the best alt text tool I’ve found. They’ve come along ways with their descriptions since it was first released and I’m so glad I snagged the LTD when it was available. The WordPress plugin is really helpful too. Well done guys, thank you! Now we need a meta data tool for pages and posts 🙂

I recently started using Alt Text AI, and it’s been a total game-changer for my website. This tool automatically generates image alt text, and it’s made a huge difference in SEO. Before using Alt Text AI, writing alt text for all my images took forever. Now, it’s done automatically, and I save so much time.

AltTextAI does exactly what it says on the box – incredibly well. The ALT text comes back perfectly describing even the most complex or sketchy images in detail, creating beautiful ALT text I would actually want to hear if I was using a screen reader. It would cost a fortune to have a human write to the same level of quality for every image – no one would do it. And that means AltTextAI gives you better ALT Text than any of your competitors. Top it off with incredible, patient customer service, and I can highly recommend this plugin.

Great product! In all my tests, it understands images very well, almost as well as a human. If you just use it for alt text to make your site more accessible, its a win, in my book!

I couldn’t get the WordPress integration to work and emailed customer service. They provided speedy and excellent service. It was great to work with Dave. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting to get it resolved so quickly. Here’s a tip to save you time if you have the same tools I do (WordPress and Elementor Pro):After you follow their directions to connect WordPress to Alt+Text.Ai, follow the directions on how to update the photos in your WordPress Media Library. However, there is one differentiation if you use Elementor:**Make sure you are using the classic menu in WordPress instead of Elementor’s menu that takes over** Media > View (top right of page) > Classic View If pressing the ‘Update Alt Text’ button does not work, check to make sure that your image is 10 MB and under which is their limit for image processing. You also need to use the classic view on bulk updates in the WordPress pages and posts sections.
