Step 1: Adding Alternative (Alt) text to Images and Objects

An important feature in Microsoft PowerPoint 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

Right-click an image and select Format Picture from the menu to add alt text.

Provide a description of the image or object in the ‘Description’ and not in the ‘Title’ section.

Add a description in the description section of the image, not the title.
