Decide whether your illustrations are relevant content or decorative elements.

  1. Relevant content
    Anchor your illustrations if they do not have the layout option In line with text. Anchoring has an effect on the logical reading order - the anchored object always follows the paragraph to which it was anchored.
    Do not forget to enter the alternative text in the task pane axesWord - Role Mapping.
  2. Decorative elements
    Change the role to Artifact in the context-sensitive task pane axesWord - Role Mapping. An alternative text is then not required.
