Property Value

Type Description

The descriptive text associated with a shape.


The AltText property contains all alternative text for a shape (a combination of Title and Description property values).

If you assign text to the AltText property, it is copied to the Description property and the Title property is set to null.

The example below shows how to add Alt Text to a shape:

Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
// Create a callout and specify its alternative text.
Shape shape = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.AccentLineCallout1);
shape.AltText = "A callout with an accent bar and a straight callout line.";
