Happy to announce our new partnership and integration with AltText.ai, an app that uses AI to automatically generate image alt text and provide high-quality image descriptions in over 130 languages with plugins, API, or web interface. AltText.ai helps content managers and editors save time and automate the tedious parts of content management.
Alt text provides Google and other search engines with contextual information about the image on the website and helps accessibility. When the image doesn’t load for some technical reason or connection issues, it provides context, and also enables those who are visually impaired.
SEO is increasingly important to content managers, and alt texts are an effective, but time-consuming way to increase your traffic.
AltText.ai founders realized that current advances in deep learning, computer vision, and AI models might finally be good enough to do the job of adding alt text without the need of a human copywriter.
#Integrate Hygraph with AltText.ai
The AltText.AI Hygraph app adds an "Alt Text" field and "Update Alt Text" button to your Asset editor in Hygraph. Click the button to generate alt text for your image and save it to the alt text field.
If you haven't seen it yet, we recently published our app framework, and this app was also made with that. Here's a link to read more about it and create your own app to add new, custom functionalities to your Hygraph instance or improve your editorial workflows.
The AltText.ai team consists of tech industry veterans with over 60 years combined experience in software architecture, machine learning, and product management. They have previously worked at some of the internet's biggest players, and have seen the challenges faced by many companies and individuals when it comes to efficiently producing effective web content.
AltText.ai was started partly out of necessity, partly out of frustration. Writing alternative text for images is a requirement when it comes to creating a modern website — both for SEO reasons and accessibility concerns — yet there was nothing available that could do this automatically.
AltText.ai founders realized that AI models are finally good enough to automate this job and no longer require the need of a human copywriter.
