Description:
It's generally regarded as good practice to include descriptive or helpful text in an image's alt (alternative) attribute. This not only aids those using browsers that either don't support images, or have the feature disabled, but also helps the visually impared who use screen readers to describe your web pages.

The controls for adding this text, either automatically or manually, can be found at the foot of the inspector palette.

Unfortunately Freeway doesn't give us direct access to styling this text and because of this it is often left to the browser to display it in it's default font style.

Alt Text Style uses CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to define a style for the alt text associated with either a single image or all of the images on a page.


Adding the action to your pages:
To add the action to your web pages follow the Item action guidelines.


Using the action:
Simply attach the action to an image on your page and choose if the settings should apply to just this image or all images on this page using the "Apply to" menu in the actions palette.
Under the font settings section you can set the style for the image's alt text including the colour, fonts, size and units (pixels or points) as well as bold and italic styles.

Once previewed in the browser you should see your alt text has become restyled according to your settings.

 

Requirements:
Freeway 3.1 or above.


Browser compatibility:
Almost all modern browsers! Any browser that supports CSS.
