Chapter 5. Working with Images > Page Loading Properties

Page Loading Properties

Not everyone who surfs the Web does so with image capabilities. Some users who have graphical browsers turn off image auto-loading, whereas others browse with a text-only browser. Visually impaired users may use text-to-speech browsers that read the page to them; and finally, mobile users may access the Web on a tiny, text-only screen, or by having their phone service read the page aloud. The only way these users will know the content of your images is if you provide a text alternative, called an Alt tag (even though it's just an attribute of the img tag).

To use an image Alt tag:

1.
Select the image for which you want to provide an Alt tag.

2.
In the Property inspector, type a description in the Alt text box (Figure 5.35).

Figure 5.35. Type the alternate text description in the Alt text box.


3.
Press Enter (Return).
