I'm not sure I've missed it, but we need to produce online documents where we can have alt-text with pictures and reading order available.  Is this a function I've missed or is it in the pipeline?  Really important for us at stamma.org otherwise we're going to have to look at other software.

Hi @Jane P,

I can confirm that this isn't a function you have missed, simply it's unfortunately not supported in Affinity at this time.

Other users have previously requested this feature here on the forums and it's something our developers hope to implement in the future - as our team certainly understands how important this can be.

I hope this clears things up :)

And you've gone to all the trouble of V2 and lots of other upgrades.  You have such brilliant software - let down by something so basic - which you've decided not to prioritise.  You can't even say it's on the being-worked on list. That is shameful and short-sighted.  People who produce materials do so for an audience, they want everyone to access it.  Companies across the spectrum are working to ensure all their products and services are accessible.  But not you.  I'm gutted.

Hi Jane,

In the latest beta we have now added a panel to allow you to add alt text to images in Publisher. We have other accessibility features in the work (such as reading order), which should be available in upcoming updates in the not too distant future.
