one of the main reasons I enjoy using mastodon so much is that it's a very community-oriented space and, as such, I think it's important for everyone to do what we can to extend that accessability and welcoming place to everyone we can, not everyone knows about the automatic caption detection feature and it just makes it so easy to do

just a reminder to please please PLEASE use an image description whenever you can, even if it's literally as short as "a pic of me" or "me" or "cat" it makes the website more accessible to everyone and is a feature that's very easy to use! there's even an automatic caption generator in the image description field (it's in the "edit" secton if you click "detect text from picture")
