about us


Every image tells a story. But every story is not told.


textBOX is a London-based company specializing in writing image descriptions (alt-text) that describe the visual world around us. textBOX combines publishing and subject expertise with technological innovation to create tailored, cost-effective accessibility solutions for publishers, higher education institutions, and commercial image archives.


Our mission is to work with content providers to create ebooks, audiobooks and platforms that are useful, discoverable and inclusive to all readers. 


textBOX helps our clients to tell the story of every image.
