Alt text character limit?
Does anyone know if there is a limit of how many characters you can input into the Alt Text option for images? I used alt text for a fairly lengthy description of a diagram that needs to be accessible with a screen reader in my course. It allowed me to input all the characters I wanted. But when I published it and tested it with JAWS, it cut off reading all the alt text I entered.
I think it would be a helpful solution to make the alt text box larger and identify a character limit, if there is one, under the box so the user is aware of how much they can input into alt text.
If anyone knows about this topic I would love to hear from you! Thank you in advance!
