It has been a pleasure to work with textBOX on image descriptions for several of our online units. Their descriptions are of outstanding quality and are always accurate and comprehensive, whether for simple photographs or complex graphics.


Our collaboration with textBOX has enhanced our learning content and ensured that all of our students have equal access to visual materials. They have provided an invaluable contribution to our courses and we look forward to working with them again in future.
