Add alt (alternative) text to images in Microsoft OneNote for iOS

Adding alternative text to photos and images that you’ve inserted in Microsoft OneNote is a useful way to provide descriptions of visual content in your notes. These descriptions can provide important context to people with visual or cognitive impairments.

iPad and iPhone

Do the following:

  1. On any page in OneNote, tap an image that you have inserted.

  2. On the menu that appears, tap Alt Text.

  3. Type a descriptive Title for the selected image. You can also add a more detailed Description of the image.

  4. Tap Done to save your changes.

Note: To change or remove existing alt text, either edit or delete the existing information in the Title and Description boxes.
