This is a little technical, but I thought I’d ask it publicly anyway. Images used to upload with an HTML tag visible that allowed me to edit it and add in alt text. (For those unfamiliar, alt text is hidden text added to images on web sites and elsewehre that provide a short description for people with visual impairments who may not be able to see the image well or at all.) I’m visually impaired and use a screen reader, so accessibility is really important, and since things like CGM graphs are often discussed, it’s great when such things are described to someone who uses a screen reader.
A while ago, the HTML code disappeared when uploading images and has been replaced with a code such as (for example)
Is there a way to modify this code to add alt text to an image?
Also, it would be GREAT if an (obvious) alt text box could be added to the image upload area to encourage sighted people to add descriptions to their images. With Twitter, Facebook, and others adding such features, I can only imagine it would be a good feature for Discourse overall.
