about textBOX


every image tells a story. we tell yours.

This is the perfect place for jargon and soaring prose. Instead, let's go with...


We are textBOX. We are a London-based company + we describe images. Every image.


We write image descriptions, sometimes called alt-text, for publishers and art galleries and universities and search engines and audiobooks.

We sat in a darkened room for a long time + designed a fiendish method for writing image descriptions. It works. Really well. It makes us happy.


We have a background in publishing and a curiosity about every subject.  We like talking about your issues. And then fixing them.


You choose the images. We describe them, We help you create content that is useful, discoverable and inclusive to every reader. 


We're textBOX. We write your images. And we tell your story. Without jargon.

who are we?
