On Monday I answered a question from a reader who wanted to know if it was possible to add alt text to the images that she uses in Google Forms. My answer was, “yes, but not in the way you would in Google Docs or Slides.” 

To add alt text to images Google Docs and Google Slides you simply right-click on an image and then select “alt text.” For some reason, in Google Forms Google refers to alt text as hover text. To add hover text you have to open the little sandwich menu (the three stacked dots) to the right of the image title field and then choose “hover text.” 

In the brief video that is embedded below I demonstrate how to add alt text or hover text to images in Google Forms
