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?

@Gina Palombit I think Atlassian Community (this site) and jira.atlassian.com (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.
