3 Use Content AI to Generate Alt Texts

While editing your content in the Classic Editor, you can also use Content AI to generate alternative text (alt text) for any image you use. However, you won’t need to use the Content AI Meta Box at this point.

For instance, if you want to upload a new image to the editor, click on the Add Media button. This will open the Media Library, where you can either upload an image or add one that you’ve already uploaded.

Once you’ve uploaded an image, click on it and navigate to the right corner. Here, you will find a Generate Alt button next to the “Alt Text” field. Click on this button, and the AI will generate an alt text for the image, as illustrated below.
