The image description field is very small making it hard to write proper descriptions without resorting to writing it elsewhere and pasting it in.
Since the field is already hidden when not hovering over the image, I think at least to start with just making the field noticeably larger could be a (hopefully) not too big change which could be a significant improvement.
As an example my last description was 96 characters, which I consider fairly short.
Yeah, ideally the text box would be below (not obscuring) the image, and large enough to show the whole description text you're editing at once.
This is a feature for helping vision impaired users, it should be as easy to attach to images as possible, minimizing it visually is imo just perverse.
wow, i wasnt even able to find the image description area, at all. so knowing it even exists is new to me, i really think it should be more obvious that they have alt text options for images, I like to add descriptions to all images and it being hard to find is very difficult to navigate. it should be more obvious and more prominent in general that its an option. I also think they should make sure their site is completely screen reader accessible so maybe having a consultant on board would be a good idea for accessibility
