How to write effective product alt text for accessibility

Generally, the purpose of alt text is to provide the same context to someone who is visually impaired as it would to someone who can see a photo.

Product alt text, however, is about providing the details of a product a sighted person may take for granted. by Bet Hannon, AccessiCart
