There is a great book for free download from the Diagram Center
<http://diagramcenter.org/making-images-accessible.html> on how to caption
complex images. Hope this helps

> I am working with a Biology instructor to add appropriate alternate text

> others.


> So, we have a Biology instructor who uses images of models - let's use the

> example of a model of a brain. The image has several areas of the brain

> numbered and labeled. I am looking for guidance on how one would approach

> alternate text for this image whether it was used as a learning guide where

> students are first introduced to the content or also if this image was part

> of a quiz question where the student had to identify a particular number

> that represented a section of the brain. We have thought over several

> Thanks in advance for your help!
