Image Request for ALT-Text Guide

SHARP member Ellen Forget is putting together an alt text guide for people attending SHARP conferences. She is looking for pictures and screenshots from previous in-person and online SHARP conferences to use as examples for the alt text guide.

You only need to submit the image and some brief information about the image (see below). You do not need to write alt text for the image. The goal is to create an easy-to-use guide to help people write and improve their alt text for future conferences. Using images specifically from SHARP conferences will help this guide to be more relevant to bookish activities specifically.

If you have an image you’d like to contribute, please send it to Ellen at ellen[dot]michelle[at]mail[dot]utoronto[dot]ca (replacing the relevant punctuation) and include the following information:

  • confirmation that you own the image
  • permission for the image to be published on a SHARP website
  • names of people in the image
  • brief description of objects of interest in the image
  • which conference the image is from
  • any other information you think might be important
