This @PleaseCaption bot is amazing. It instantly detects whether you've posted media without alt text and sends you a little toot so you can delete and re-draft. Give it a follow now. (Hope it can work at scale)
I could use something similar. Could be usable for blind people I.e. don't download invisible pictures and ones without text descr are invisible to them.
@phocks @PleaseCaption sometimes I posted a simple picture with a descriptive toot on top. I found myself thinking that a caption would only have been a repetition.
UI of upload dialogue could help here too. Might need review for some descrs though if abused by evil user.
Also wonder whether some kind of AI couldnt suggest descrs for some pics at least. For videos its impossible to create summaries by AI so far.
@phocks @PleaseCaption Toot! has a setting - dunno if that is client side only tho.
@Cacotopos @PleaseCaption Ahh yes that's what I need!
@Cacotopos @PleaseCaption iPhone only :(
