Adding & Replacing Alt Text
You must add alt text for any images that link, even if they would normally be considered decorative. 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 doesn't link and offers absolutely no important visual information, you
may check the "Image is decorative" option box. Otherwise, make sure this box is left
- Add your alt text to the "Alternative description" box. Click "Save" to confirm.
You can follow the same instructions as adding alt text to a simple list.
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 "Image is decorative" option box under Insert/Edit Image (shown above). Then click "Save" to confirm.
