I like that #iOS15 lets me add descriptions to photos for VoiceOver to read, but I wish they would go with the photo when I post it so I don’t have to retype the #AltText. #BlindProblems
Just a friendly reminder if you upload photos without #AltText, I reserve the right to reply back with my AI’s garbled interpretation of your message. The good news is my DM’s are oepn if you have questions about how to add #AltText.
I’ve noticed that more and more people on #Mastodon are adding #AltText to their #images. Other services like Twitter and Facebook, however, seem to be showing no measureable difference. Additionally, many people’s websites contain pictures without descriptions. This suggests that the failiure of people to add descriptions to their photos is less about people not caring to take the time to add descriptions, but rather they just don’t remember or don’t know how to do it, since most platforms hide the feature better than Professor Dumbledore hid The Sorcerer’s Stone. At least three different people found that thing.
Seeing if the #altText is still working on Instagram.
