Describing Graphic Files for Students with Visual Impairments
Graphic files are very commonly used in online distance education, whether as clip art in a Microsoft Word document, a chart in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, or as an illustration in an HTML document. Providing a text alternative for these graphic files provides students with visual impairments with an opportunity to have the same level of information as other students accessing these files.
