To add alt text to an image in a Word file, double click it (or
right-click it and select Format Picture).  Then select the Web tab in
the Format Picture dialog and enter the alt text in the great big space
provided.  Save the file.

When you convert the file to Adobe PDF via the Acrobat menu that's added
to Word, the alt text will be carried over into the PDF document-- but
make sure your Acrobat Conversion Settings are correct.  For more info,
see http://access.adobe.com.

Subject: Reccomendations, images in PDF or MS Word files


Are there any recommendations and techniques for resolving images
embedded in PDF or MS Word files that are placed on web pages?

Maybe like putting alternative text on those images. If this is possible
would screen readers pick up these images?

If you know of any resources for resolution and the techniques to do
such a thing can I have the URL's so I can resolve any issues.

Thanks for your guidance.
