It was helpful to have a real world example of an EqTD provided at the end of this document.

Personally, I believe this document is extremely beneficial when creating your own appropriate alt-text. As Shannon said above, the examples were very easy to understand and make sense of. Overall, I feel this is a valuable resource to be aware of and I plan to go back and reference this when I have questions or forget certain rules pertaining to writing equivalent text descriptions for graphic elements.

I believe that this document is very helpful when creating and writing EqTD's. This is a tutorial walks you through step by step on how to wrote an EqTD, and what it should look like by then end of creating it. This document also gives a real example, and walks you through how to write a brief, essential, and detailed EqTD. I will definitely use this for my final assignments that I have this semester, and in the future as a reference.
