Adding & Replacing Alt Text
Consider alt text each time you add an image to a multipurpose list and whenever you replace an existing image.
- Select your image, then click the Image icon to get to the Insert/Edit options.
- If the image offers absolutely no important visual information, you may check the
"Decorative" option box. Otherwise, make sure this box is left unchecked.
- Add your alt text to the "Description" box. Click "OK" to confirm.
You can tell screen readers to skip your image if it conveys absolutely no important visual information or if it merely repeats information that is already on the page.
Marking an Image as Decorative in Multipurpose Lists
Check the "Decorative" option box under Insert/Edit Image (shown above). Then click "OK" to save.
