Add a TITLE and DESCRIPTION attribute to an SVG in Adobe Illustrator

Pretty much as the title states.

I wish to add the TITLE and DESCRIPTION in the SVG file for accessibility purposes.

I’m aware that you can edit the XML file directly, but I wish to do so using only Illustrator as this workflow is for non technical people.

Thanks,

/J

As of this article in 2013: http://schepers.cc/authoring-accessible-svg (alas, I can’t find the author’s name…someone please add it if they can find it!)

…Adobe Illustrator allows you to add title and description at the document level–but not object level within AI’s GUI.

Inkscape allows you to add title and description to both the document itself as well as the individual elements within.
