Adding & Replacing Alt Text
Consider alt text every time you add a new thumbnail or replace an existing image.
- Select your thumbnail image, then click the Image icon to get to the Insert/Edit options.
- Make sure that the "Decorative" option box is left unchecked.
- Add your alt text to the "Description" box. Click "OK" to confirm.
Captions & Alt Text
Most of the time, alt text and captions serve very different purposes. However, if your caption conveys all of the visual information found in your image, you can mark the image as decorative to keep a screen reader from reading the same description twice.
