How To Add Alt Text To Image In Outlook Signature

How to Add Alt Text to Image in Outlook Signature

Adding alt text to an image in an Outlook signature is a crucial step towards making your emails more accessible to individuals with disabilities. Alt text, short for alternative text, is a text description of an image that appears when the image cannot be displayed. Alt text is used by screen readers and other assistive technologies to describe images to people with visual impairments. This way, they can understand the message your image is conveying.

Here are the steps you can follow to add alt text to an image in your Outlook signature:

Step 1: Open Outlook and go to the Signature settings

First, open Microsoft Outlook and go to File > Options > Mail > Signatures. Once there, select the signature you want to add the image to and click on the “Edit” button.

Step 2: Insert the Image and Add Alt Text

With the signature editor open, click on the “Picture” icon to add an image. Once the image is inserted, right-click on it and select “Format Picture”. In the “Format Picture” dialog box, select the “Layout & Properties” icon and then click on the “Alt Text” option.

In the “Alt Text” dialog box, add a short, descriptive phrase that describes the image. Make sure that the alt text is relevant to the image and accurately describes any information or message that the image is conveying.

Step 3: Save Your Signature

Once you have entered the alt text, click the “Close” button to save your changes. Then, click “OK” to close the signature editor and save your signature.

By following these steps, you can easily add alt text to the images in your Outlook signature. Making your emails more accessible ensures that everyone can receive and understand your message – no matter what their abilities are.
