Provide alternative text for a picture

You can specify alternative text (alternative text: Used by Web browsers to display text during image downloads for users who have graphics turned off and for users who rely on screen-reading software to convert graphics on the screen to spoken words.) for pictures in a Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 form template. Alternative text appears when a user moves the pointer over a picture, and also helps users with screen readers understand the content of pictures.

  1. Right-click the picture, and then click Format Picture on the shortcut menu.
  2. Click the Text tab.
  3. In the Alternative text box, type the text you want.

 Tip   The text can be as long as you want, but some Web browsers might be able to display only a limited number of characters.
