Quick Tip: Succinct Alternative Text
Alternative text should be succinct. There is not a defined maximum length for alt text, but a rough guideline of around 100 characters is generally a good threshold. Alternative text longer than around 100 characters typically indicates that the content should be provided some other way (such as in text in the context of the image, on a separate description page, etc.).
