Adding Alt Text to Images in Microsoft Word
This tutorial from Colorado State University is about adding “alt text” to images to provide a textual alternative to visual information. Information, including images, should be understandable in multiple ways. By adding alt text to an image, its meaning is available to people who, for whatever reason, cannot see it. Whether due to technological limitations or visual impairment, many people require a text alternative to visual information. This tutorial covers how to add alt text in MS Office 2003, 2007, and 2010. It also covers how to describe images and what to do with images that have no significance.
