Adding Titles to Office Documents
The document title attribute is how the document is identified. It is generally the first thing announced by a screenreader upon opening a document. It is also generally how the screenreader identifies a document when switching between different open applications on a computer.
The title should be succinct, unique, and descriptive of the document. In other words, if a user had multiple documents open, they should be easily able to identify each one from the title.
