I am using Robohelp Reimagined 2019 and attempting to use a version of the Orange output skin for my project. I am trying to reduce/remove errors and alerts in my browser for accessibility purposes and I do not know how to add alternate text to the images that are used in the skin. In the skin editor, I've tested different options to see if I could type the text into the "Content" field but that did not seem to appear when I was running my accessibility testing plug-in (Wave) on Chrome when viewing the output. Any advice would be appreciated.
I will see what I can find out on this one.
This is the reply I received from Adobe.
"In skin, images are not used as a “image” but as icons which represent an action (e.g. search, download pdf, etc.). All icons are used as background of either a button or a link, which have a title or aria-label attribute set to be used by assistive technologies, though this is only implemented in RH2020, so user will need to update the RoboHelp.
One instance where I see we can use “alt text” property will be the banner on homepage but for now we don’t have a way to provide this information, other instances or either a button or a link.
Also if user is using images in in topics, then he/she will have to provide alt text from the properties panel in author view."
Thank you for your help, Peter!
