To capture and catalog the nuance, detail, and beauty of each digital image, Scribely writes premium alt text and extended descriptions for everything from photos, infographics, and maps to sculptures, paintings, and memes.
Every visual is an opportunity to connect with your audience. Delivering the right alt text and extended descriptions starts with a human-first approach.
Our tribe of writers not only focus on what an image looks like, but also on the purpose and meaning behind it. In order to do this, we describe the primary focus of the image, while capturing all the relevant details and incorporating keywords naturally.
Most importantly, we ask each writer to step back and ask themselves, “Does this description help me visualize the same image?”

Beige atrium of an excavated Pompeiian villa with high ceilings and mosaic tile floor. Light filters in from a clerestory window.
The tile floor composed of geometric mosaics interspersed with figurative scenes surrounds a square basin at the center. Peeling red frescoes adorn some walls, and textured mud brick is exposed on the upper portion of the structure. The far end of the atrium opens to an outdoor colonnade and garden.
Movie poster for “I, Tonya.” Margot Robbie as Tonya Harding stands with hand on hip, head tilted up with a defiant gaze.
Robbie leans against a white cinderblock wall as she grips ice skates by the blades. She wears a white figure skating dress with accents of gold sequins and fringe on the cap sleeves. Her wavy blonde hair is pulled back with bangs curled.
The title appears in pink block letters at the top with a pink chalk line underneath. Actor names Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan, and Allison Janney appear above the title.
Below this, pink text from two reviews is overlayed on the white backdrop. The first review reads, "A Knockout! The Goodfellas of Figure Skating," The Playlist. The second reads, "A hilarious tragedy of success so entertaining you can't look away," Indiewire.
