Text-based alternatives for audio and visual web content

From the blog post: Work accessibility into your content strategy

 

Whether it's buying what you sell, making a donation, or simply getting in touch, creating content that is accessible to people with disabilities will allow more people the opportunity to interact, enjoy, and be stimulated by your web presence. And the most effective way of making audio and visual content accessible to the widest audience - including those with disabilities? It’s through the provision of text-based alternatives. Why? Because electronic text can be rendered in whatever tactile form best meets the needs of a user.

 

So what are the options open to us? What could we be doing? What should we be doing?
