Is this structured or unstructured FM (and what vintage FM)?

 

And what dialog are you using to input the alt= (or title=) text?

What exact dialog path is that? (and this is FM2019, 15.0.5.838, 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.

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
