Yes. I like for Jaws to pause briefly after reading an alt text. It helps me to separate items as I'm listening to them on a web page.

I am new to this list and working on a presentation about Section 508. I am a doctoral student and may be doing my dissertation on some aspect of web accessibility and Higher education and Learning Management Systems. More specifically : Faculty training in Web Accessibility using WebCT (there is none for the most part)

I have taken a course on accessibility and help fix pages so that they are accessible. I have some knowledge, but need more. I am not a techie but physical therapist and biology professor.

My question is:

For this presentation, I am developing a self training module and have a question about ALT text.
