I love Mastodon’s “Describe for the visually impaired” feature for images.
I don’t know if the web client does this, but Tusky prompts you if you forget a description. The result is that all pictures I’ve seen here, bar just three in the one day I’ve been here after my Mastodon hiatus, have a neat description of their contents.
I’m not even visually impaired. Yet. It just feels good to know that this content will be accessible to me if I live long enough for my eyesight to become a problem.
@aeveltstra The web client lets you do that. It just doesn’t prompt if you forget. I just verified this behaviour in the browser.
(However, if you use a Mastodon API client and set an alt tag from it, that works, and Pleroma ships with a fork of glitch-soc’s FE (as MastoFE).)
