Re: TIP - PDFs from Word show inserted image filenames (uponmouseover)
When you add an image to a Word doc, the image's description defaultsto 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 foraccessibility reasons):
1. Right-click the image and select Format Picture.the title...for some weird reason, it's not used anywhere.)
2. Select Alt Text (bottom option on the left).
3. Change the description to reflect the purpose of the image. (Ignore
I'm using Word 2007, and found the Alt Text option in the Format Size (instead of Format Picture) option.
