Alt text for images in the new editor?

Being a sometimes user of screen-reader technology, I frequently added alt-text descriptions on images in Confluence pages in the old editor. I've been trying to find a similar feature in the new editor, but I've been unable to locate a way to add alt-text. Is alt-text for images possible in the new editor?

I encourage you to vote for this oversight, err suggestion.

How do you vote for things?

@Gina Palombit You need to be signed in to vote. Once you're signed in, you'll be able to click Vote for this issue on the right side of the page.

I am signed in, otherwise I wouldn't be able to write a comment lol

@Gina Palombit I think Atlassian Community (this site) and (where the Jira is located) are two different sites, and require separate logins.

As far as I know, it's still a missing feature. And an insanely bad oversight on Atlassian's part.


All you need to do is add your image, click on the image, then select add "Alt Text" add you your text and hit enter.
