Allow the addition of Alt Text for images
The addition of Alt Text is a basic accessibility consideration. Currently we can't do this is Teams (you can do it easily in Yammer).
Currently we are using the work around of adding descriptive text when posting an image.
This is basic stuff, Microsoft. Images need alt tags, even for sighted people waiting for an image to load.
Like the person below, I can't believe we have to vote for this :-/

This shouldn't even need to be a vote imho.
It's about inclusivity, and should be included as standard.
This is needed...
Need alt-text in Government Community Cloud (GCC)

No alt-text functionality allows for continued institutional discrimination in the workforce against the visually impaired!
This would be an easy fix, but for those it affects - a huge milestone and a reason to build the use of Microsoft Teams in their daily work life.
Please add the functionality! We need to be able to add alt text in teams - this is a clear 1.1.1 WCAG violation.

This really is an absolute minimum to support clients whose vision is impaired in some way, and others with various accessibility issues. I can't believe this is still an issue in Sept 2019! Please fix on a priority basis!
