Dynamic Converter Template Editor Guide
Associating Alternative Text With a Graphic
You have three options in Template Editor for associating alternative text with a graphic
from a source document. Whatever text is used will display in your browser in the event
that the graphic does not display. (The text will also be visible when the mouse is passed
over the graphic on your Web page.)
To associate alternative text with a graphic from source:
1. In Formatting, click Graphics to open that tab dialog.
2. Do one of the following:
ʍ Under Alternative Text, click Use Alternative text from source document if
ʍ Under Captions, click Use caption, and then click the Caption button, and in the
Captions dialog box, click Before the graphic or After the graphic, and then
click OK, or
ʍ Under Alternative Text, enter text in the Alternative Text field that you want to
display in place of the graphic.
3. Click OK.
Note: You must select the element associated with a graphic in order to associate
alternative text with it. However, you can select multiple elements, if you like, to be sure
that you edit all the appropriate elements of the template that are associated with graphics.
Note: You can also select multiple methods of associating alternative text, that is, all three
bulleted options in Step 3. In that event, Dynamic Converter will follow the order of the
bulleted list items to determine what alternative text to display.
In other words, if you associate alternative text with a graphic that is embedded in a source
document, that text will always be used, and the other two types of alternative text, if
selected, will be ignored for that graphic. If you don’t specify alternative text from the
source document, then caption text will be used, if it has been specified, and any
alternative text entered in the Alternative Text field will be ignored. Finally, alternative
text entered in the Alternative Text field will be used only if no other alternative text is
