Alternative text, or "alt text" lets people perceive the information contained in an image if they can’t see it. It also increases the search-ability of a document. In this workshop we will review different ways images are used in documents, and what the best practices are for associating alt text based on how the image is being used. We will look at different types of images, and how to associate alt text with them in Blackboard as well as in Microsoft Word. Please RSVP so that we may plan for your participation and to receive the virtual link to this session.
