With the PublishPress Checklists plugin, you can require that all the images have ALT text in your WordPress content. If an image is missing the ALT text, you can choose to show a warning, or prevent the post from being published.
ALT text (short for “alternative text”) is useful because it describes images to visitors who are unable to see them. Visually impaired users often use screen readers that can read ALT text to better understand an on-page image.
