Captions are short descriptive or explanatory texts or headings attached to the image, placed above, beside or beneath an image, having the role of identifying the illustration and to distinguish it from the other pictures XML Labels and captions, when properly placed on or near the illustration, or when encoded for the purpose of random access, searchability and findability, are a further step towards a smooth and continuous reading Method: SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)
