How can I easily tell (on a phone) if an image has alt text or not on Mastodon. Would be great if Mastodon visibly flagged images that don’t have alt text with a warning in the interface so we know not to boost posts that don’t have it.

@aral long tap. The popup menu with options shows the alt text and the url on top.

@aral that's in chrome when the image is not opened. In firefox it shows only the url when the image is not opened and only the alt text if the image is opened.


Wow thats nice! Thanks for pointing this out, I didn't know!


@GidiKroon Ah, thanks. So on Safari on iOS, I have to tap to view the imagine in full and then long tap (the latter doesn’t work when imagine is in the post).
