Creating Clickable Regions for Image Maps in Word
An image map can be a single image separated with clickable regions or a composite image made up of multiple images grouped together, yet still separated with clickable regions. For example, you could create an image of the countries of Europe and then define an image map for the image that allows users to link to a topic about each country when they click on an area of the image. User can click France to see information about France, Italy to see information about Italy, and so on.
When you define an image map, you can also define alternate text for each clickable region. For example, you might define alternate text for the Italy region as “Click here for more information about Italy.” For more information about assigning alternate text to image maps, see “Assigning Alternate Text to Images and Image Maps in Word” on page 266.
