i have put ALT text into my images for accessibility of html documents, and save-as HTML.
the info i put into Frame does not get copied/transferred into the HTML.
i need to produce accessible documents and this is very important.
Is this structured or unstructured FM (and what vintage FM)?
And what dialog are you using to input the alt= (or title=) text?
we are using unstructured FM 2017 v14.0
I am selecting the achored frame, and going in to the "object attributes" and I put something in the "alt" and also the "actual" field.
any advice is appreciated.
What exact dialog path is that? (and this is FM2019, 126.96.36.1998, unstruct)
I see Graphics » Object Properties, but it has no Alt field.
No Attributes dialogs in sight.
That aside, I'm wondering if any Alt would need to be applied to the content of the AF, and not the frame itself.
select the anchored frame
choose Insert > Anchored Frame > Object Attributes
Are you using File > Publish or Save As HTML?
i am using save as HTML
Save As HTML doesn't give you too much control over the output. You should try FrameMaker's Publish command (File > Publish) and see if the alt text passes through.
wow, thanks for the tip! that got my ALT text to transfer to the HTML. it looks like there are a lot of settings in there but I just kept the default for everything. one difference is it seems to create an index/menu file automatically, even if there is just one HTML page, but that is not really an issue. thank you again
