Setting the Image Tag Accessibility Attributes dialog box options
The purpose of this dialog box is to set image tag accessibility options. You can enter one or both attributes depending on your needs. The screen reader reads the Alt attribute for the image.
To set image tag accessibility options:
- In the Alt text box, enter a name or brief description for the image.
The screen reader reads the information you enter here. You should limit your entry to around 50 characters. For longer descriptions, consider providing a link, in the Long Description text box, to a file that gives more information about the image.
- In the Long Description text box, enter the location of a file that displays when the user clicks the image or click the folder icon to browse to the file.
This text box provides a link to a file that is related to, or gives more information about, the image.
- Click OK.
If you press Cancel, the image appears in the document, but Dreamweaver does not associate accessibility tags or attributes with it.
