Just use shift plus an arrow key then do the application key or shift-f10 and up arrow and you will get into the options for the photo stuff.
The alt-text is a separate item if that is all you want to do in that menu.

Hi all,


When I tried to use alt text, , I was not able to select the image and I think this is the problem. The usual selection commands don’t seem to work when it comes to selecting text. Unless Is there a way to select an image?

Subject: Adding alt text in MSWord2016



I am trying to add alt text to images in MSWord 2016 using JFW2018 and 2019, but I am not getting the format/alt options. Here are the steps I am following:

1. Select an image
2. Write click using tab+9 or shift+F10
3. This is where I am supposed to get format picture option in which the second tab would be for alt text, but using JFW I am not getting that option for format picture at all.

I have tried to insert alt text on two Windows-running PCs in MSWord2016, one with JFW2018 and the other JFW2019.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated
