Using HeyOrca’s Alt Text to Make Your Content More Accessible

Using Alt Text in HeyOrca

With HeyOrca’s Alt Text feature, you can now add descriptions to your images that will help make your content more accessible and to create more inclusive content!

There are two ways that you can add Alt Text to your images:

  • On images directly in your HeyOrca Media Library
  • On images within your posts in the HeyOrca calendar

Note: Alt text is only supported for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn. Instagram does not currently support Alt text through their API. Alt text is not supported for videos.

Here’s how to add Alt Text to your images in the Media Library:

Step 1: From the calendar view, click on the “Library” icon located on the grey navigation bar:

Step 2: Find the image you would like to add Alt Text to and click the three “ellipses” on the image, then click “Alt Text”:


Step 3: Type your description in the text box beside the image, and click “Save” when you’d like to save your changes. 

Your Alt Text has been added to your photo! The “Alt” Tag will be visible when you’ve added an Alt Text description to an image in your media library.

How to add Alt Text to your photos in a post on the calendar:

Step 1: On your HeyOrca calendar, create a new post or edit an existing post.

Step 2: Upload an image to your post, and click the three “Ellipses” on your image slide show to edit the Alt text of that image.

Step 3: Type your description in the text box beside the image, and click “Save” when you’d like to save your changes. 

Your Alt text has been added to the image on your post! This will be visible on the “Alt” tag on your image when you hover over it.
