Set Alternative Text

While all content in the PDF must be tagged sometimes additional information is neccessary to make the document fully compliant. Tags such as figures or shapes should contain additional alternate text that helps describe the image to the user. Alternative text can also be used to provide additional explanations (such as a portion of text in another language) to tagged text content as well.

When setting alternate text on a tag it's important that a Language value is set to ensure accessibility tools such as screen readers know how interpret the contents of the alternate text.

Follow the instructions below to set alternate text on any tagged content within the PDF.
