[Athen] some questions on Word accessibility and the built-in accessibility checker

Hello All:

I'm in the process of creating some videos and other resources on
accessibility. One of the things I'm looking at is the Accessibility
Checker in Word an PowerPoint. I notice that the checker flags for missing
table alt text. In the demo document I'm using I have a caption (just
normal text centered under the table) and introductory text for the table.
I would think alt text would be redundant in this case but since this is
going to be a training tool I want to ensure I'm correct on this.

Thanks in advance for any help.
