Hi, Monique :-)

> <snip> In my PDF, when I mouseover an image, a tooltip pops up with the filename of the image I inserted. So generally no problem because I name my images to match pretty closely with the image captions. (And in fact, it’s kind of nice because then it’s easy to pick out an image for later manipulation.)

When you add an image to a Word doc, the image's description defaults
to the filename. When you PDF the file, the description becomes the
image's alt attribute.

If you would like to use different text (which is suggested for
accessibility reasons):

1. Right-click the image and select Format Picture.
2. Select Alt Text (bottom option on the left).
3. Change the description to reflect the purpose of the image. (Ignore
the title...for some weird reason, it's not used anywhere.)
