Fuzzbutt says 'Caption Your Media!' :D
(If you have handwriting like mine, this is essential ;p)
@welshpixie my handwriting is like if someone heard of the term handwriting but was more flexible about the term "writing"...
and possibly the term "hand"
@welshpixie Two things that don't get mentioned often enough in this context: the OCR built in to the Mastodon web interface, and https://f-droid.org/packages/io.github.subhamtyagi.ocr an offline OCR utility for Android. They're not a panacea, but they help make the worst case (text in images) easy to handle.
@welshpixie is there a way to read those captions or how an image indicates there is a caption
total newbie to mastodon, here
@semiotic_pirate Hi! If you're on a computer, hovering your mouse over the image should show it. If you're on a phone app, I think usually a long press on the image will show the caption :)
@welshpixie ok but your handwriting is some of the most legible handwriting I have ever seen xD
(not a case against alt text, just a comment on the handwriting)
