There is a big difference between alternate text and the title attribute
The alt text is what is read to a user by a screen reader if they cannot see the image
The title text is a tooltip that pops up within a browser to provide additional information about an image
Dreamweaver CC now includes the title in the Properties panel when you select an image
Preview the specials page in the browser and hover over the images
There is nothing that pops up in the browser
We will add a title to each of these images and view them once again in the browser so you can see what the title adds to the image
Select the first image on the page
Type some title text in the title area in the properties panel for that image
Save and preview the page in the browser
If you hover your cursor on the image, you will see your title show up on the web page
This is a great way to add additional information about an image for the user
The alternate text for an image is read by a screen reader, the title is used as text for a popup area that shows when the user hovers on the image
