There are 'Title', 'Description' and 'Name' properties for each shape. 
"alt text" sounds more like many lines, so I would suggest to use 
'Description' for it, maybe there is also a good fit for 'Title'. The 
property 'Name' should be a short string and is shown in the navigator, 
maybe also a good candidate to add something useful.
