If you want to make an effort to include descriptions but keep forgetting, feel free to follow @PleaseCaption; it will send you a friendly DM whenever you forget to add a description, allowing you to Delete & Redraft before the post gets too many notes.
Adding a description helps a lot more people than just those who use screen readers, too! If you're able, please consider adapting it as a habit whenever you post.
If you'd like some ideas of how to write an image description/alt text, you can refer to this handy guide: https://www.americananthro.org/ImageDescriptions
There are many other guides out there, too, if you do a quick internet search.
If anyone who regularly appreciates or relies on image descriptions want to reply with their own tips/tricks/links/resources, please do! I am by no means an expert on such things!
@Curator hi! i want to ask if putting an image description is enough in the alt text, or it should be part of the body of our toot?
