I have been a subscriber with Alttext.ai since August The developers of this service and plugin have been very focused and committed. The only 1-star review that is here would be correct back in August 2023, and I even shared with them my disappointment at the time with what felt like missed potential. They promised they would stay focused and it would be a great program, and they did not disappoint! Hands down – alttext.ai is pretty much a no-brainer for anyone with a website – especially with large visual images. The quality of the output and the automation it now has is incredible and doesn’t just save time – it saves the impossible if you have a site like ours were with thousands of images without a decent alt text and description. I’d also argue we are seeing its effect almost instantly with our ranking, too. Great job guys, really glad I supported the app and plugin early and stuck it through! Get this plugin!

Before I discovered alttext.ai I did not want to do my alt texts, as it’s booring and in visual sites, with many images it creates another job. After I have alttext.ai that’s no longer the case, and it works flawlessly.

I upload thousands of photos onto my photography blog every year, and adding alt text is a time-consuming pain and to be honest, a bit boring.I tested this plugin on my Wordpress site and was blown away at how good it writes descriptive text in a way that is informative and realistic. I highly recommend this plugin if you value your time and have other more important tasks to address. Great customer service, too!

It’s really amazing what AI can do now. I had 8,500 images to add alt-text to and this plugin was able to write the text for me. The description are surprisingly accurate. I am going through everything to make sure the descriptions are correct as occasionally something is misinterpreted, but this is a huge time saver.
