UX writing is the user communication within digital interfaces. In order for users to complete a certain task when using a website or an app, this communication has to be intuitive and easy to understand – for everybody. It goes without saying that this includes users of all abilities and users in all kinds of situations. Therefore, inclusion and accessibility play a major role in UX writing.
However, the truth is: While there might be large consensus about the importance of accessibility in UX writing, it is barely talked about how exactly we can ensure accessibility when writing microcopy. The same goes for alt text, which is the description of functional visual elements in the interface – an element that is crucial for creating effective user experience for visually impaired users.
