Add New Tags to Content

If your headings and text lack tags altogether, you must select these elements and apply tags using the Touch Up Reading Order tool.

Selecting Text and Adding Tags

If your mouse cursor is not already in selection tool mode (“+”), click the icon in the top right corner of the Touch Up Reading Order tool to activate the selection tool.

Activate the selection tool with the icon in the top right corner

  1. Fully surround the text you wish to tag, ensuring all letters are selected. (TIP: You may need to encircle an area much larger than just your text in order to successfully select it and it may require more than one attempt)
  2. If you are tagging a heading, click the appropriate heading button.
  3. If you are tagging a block of text, click Text.

Select the text area and then select the appropriate tag element button

After you have tagged all the text content in your document, continue to Step 6: Add alternate text (text descriptions) to images
