It's really irritating that I was looking up how to write good alt text and 100% of the results were about search engine optimization, not one single one about accessibility.

@nytpu Would you still like some resources about good image descriptions?

@nytpu here's a pretty good one geared toward social media:

Here's advice for websites but the "Let’s create the perfect alt-text!" section is really good advice for any situation (and it does mention that SEO doesn't belong there).

@nytpu .hg Isn't the way to write alt text the same as the way to write image descriptions here on fedi?

@moonbolt Yeah, same thing, the fedi image description goes right into the image's alt field.
