hey folks, can we get some attention on this Mastodon accessibility issue?

[Accessibility] Hovertext for image descriptions is insufficient #8237

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

As it stands now, captioned/described images in Mastodon are useless on devices that can't trigger "on-hover" like a smartphone with a touch screen.

Or anything with a screen reader or Braille terminal attached...

@staticsafe they technically can, but yes, an UI/tab that shows image metadata would be pretty cool! we could even extend it to EXIF later!

@staticsafe (at least for EXIF-based image descriptions...)
