How To Activate or Deactivate The Alt Text Feature in Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint

In a previous post of mine I had mentioned about how to Add or Edit Alt Text in PowerPoint, a post where you can find right here. In this post I will describe how to activate or deactivate this feature which is available in Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint.

As mentioned: Alternative text is text associated with an image that serves the same purpose and conveys the same essential information as the image. In situations where the image is not available to the reader, perhaps because they have turned off images in their web browser or are using a screen reader due to a visual impairment, the alternative text ensures that no information or functionality is lost.

Click, Download and Install A Font in Microsoft Office 365 Applications

How many times we found our-selves looking for a Font, that we wanted to use in our Microsoft Applications. How many hours wasted navigating around the Web to find the specific Font. Not only that, but then we had to Install it also, either by right clicking on it, or by installing it with the use of the Control Panel. Not to worry anymore. In Microsoft Office 365 applications, there is no need to worry about it, or no time to waste with it. All we have to do is to open the specific application that we want to use, and then from the Font drop-down menu, we just select the Font that we want to download and that is it.

Set Proofing and Display Language in Microsoft Office 365 Applications

In our multicultural word, we often find ourselves within Microsoft Office applications, the necessity to work in other languages rather than our native language. We can even set both the Display Language and the Editing Language to be the same, or we can make them to be in different languages if we want. We can have multiple languages installed, and switch between them quickly and easily.

Below, I will describe and show how to make Microsoft Office applications to work in another language.

We must pay attention to the three basic areas, where we might want to change the language:

  • Display Language: Also known as User Interface or “UI”, which is all the buttons, menus and commands in Office.
  • Editing Language: Is the Language, where we type and edit our content.
  • Proofing Tools: So we can do the Spelling and Grammar check.
