Re: alt-texting on various devices

I have the iPhone se2020. I did not see anything for alt-texting, maybe I did not look in the right places! But, the same alt-text is visible on edge, firefox, chrom and brave. But not off the facebook app when I tried viewing the same posting with  2 devices, I would think they would say the same things. I am glad, I tried both devices because, it makes it like someone did not alt-text the graphic and they did? Just my phone cant see the alt-text.

Thanks Heather

There is, and it depends on which phone you have if this is even possible.

Hello,

I would recommend checking your voice over and speech settings to see if there is something about alt text under there. It should automatically recognize it but I’m not sure if there is something you have to turn on in order for it to recognize the text in an image.

Hay I JUST HAPPENED TO NOTICE THAT ONE OF THE face-book post I was following was alt-text when I read it off the pc but, I read the same off my iPhone and the alt-text was not on the post, the same post. Can anyone tell me why if it is alt-texted only the pc shows it and the iPhone does not?  I thought it was universal if it was alt-texted on 1 platform, it was for the other.

Thanks Heather
