Add Alt Txt" to Your Instagram Photos

How do I edit the alternative text for a photo on Instagram?

Automatic alt text uses object recognition technology to provide a visual description of photos for people with visual impairments. You can replace this text to provide a better description of a photo. Keep in mind that this description will only be read if someone is using a screen reader to access Instagram.

To see and edit alt text for a photo before you post it on Instagram:

  • Start by taking a photo or uploading an existing photo to Instagram.

  • Choose a filter and edit the image, then tap Next.

  • Tap Advanced Settings at the bottom of the screen.

  • Tap Alt Text.

  • Write your alt text in the box and tap Done.

  • To change the alt text of a photo after you've already posted it on Instagram:

  • Go to the photo and tap (iPhone) or(Android).

  • Tap Add Alt Text in the bottom right.

  • Write the alt text in the box and tap Done.
