Hi Byron,

Instructions to add an alt text in Powerpoint: http://ncdae.org/resources/cheatsheets/#msppt

As for writing appropriate description, both WAI and WebAIM have good articles:

If all that Taleo screenshot does is to supplement her written instructions, she might not need alt text at all, since the equivalent information is already available in text.

She took a screen shot of something in Taleo (the U.T system's employment system to post jobs, and allow access to a search committee member to view applicant information). She wanted to know how to adequately describe the screenshot. Any suggestions?
