Request: Alt Text in Images (for accessibility)


I'm not sure if this is the correct forum. Moderators please move if I posted in the wrong place.

I am wondering if it is possible with the forum CMS to allow Alt text with uploaded or embedded images. This allows those of us, including me, that our blind or visually impaired to have an idea of what that image is. I do understand that I am in the minority here, but with millions of people being visually impaired and there being more people using screen readers than ever, I believe this is a valid suggestion.

PS: another incentive to do this is that Google favors PR rankings for accessible websites. Smiley Wink

I've added in a description section when users upload a photo. I hope that will work. I could not find an option for alt text.
