This article describes how to create a more accessible Microsoft Word 2016 document using Alt Text.
Alt Text makes documents more accessible to users with disabilities.
- Right-click the image or object, and select Format Picture.
- Select the Layout and Properties icon.
- Choose Alt Text and fill out the Title and Description. The screen reader first reads the title. The person can then decide whether to hear a longer description. Make the description as specific as possible. "Two-tone black and blue Harley-Davidson Sportster, model Year 2012." is a far better description than "Motorcycle."
- When finished, simply click the X in the upper right corner of the Alt Text dialog box to close. Your changes will be saved.
