Microsoft Word has a number of accessibility features. Please use the following strategies as a first step to making your document more accessible.
Step 1: Adding Alternative (Alt) text to Images and Objects
An important feature in Microsoft Word is to add alternative text to an object or image. The description should be short and effectively communicate the purpose and/or content of the image.
To add Alt text, please right click on an image and select Format Picture
Provide a description of the image or object in the ‘Description’ and not in the ‘Title’
