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.

> A Human Resources rep contacted me and asked what the steps were to add an alt tag on a photo in Power Point that would be screen reader accessible. 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?
