Add Instagram "Alternative text" feature

Instagram now allows you to add alternative text to your post, a meta description which allows google to add your post to search results. For now, you can only do it when posting from your phone. It would make my job a lot easier if I didn't have to manually post everything from later and add this due some post are posted at night.

    I'm in desperate need of this!!😭 I have a few clients that found out how much alt text is boosting reach but it's not available on here. I can do it via Creator Studio but then I lose the ability for hashtags in the comments. PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE STAT!!!

    This is SO important for accessibility. Please prioritize making your tool an asset to people trying to make content for accessible for ALL people.

    This shouldn't be up for debate/vote. This is a necessary feature for many people.

    Alt Text being prioritized as a feature should not rely on popularity votes, as many people who don't need it won't prioritize this or possibly even be aware of it's necessity. This feature can be the difference between people with low or no vision having access or not having access to content. And like someone said below, not having it on Later essentially renders this 'time-saving' tool pointless. Please add this feature. It just needs to get done.

    PLEASE ADD THIS ALREADY, this is truly really important for accessibility and adding it after the post defeats the purpose of using a scheduler.

    Please add this! If you're going to have an instagram scheduler, it should be able to post in all aspects of the app.

    Please implement this as a feature as soon as possible - for those of us working in small organisations looking to be as accessible as possible the current set up is very time consuming!

    Why is this not a feature yet? We may have to change scheduling tools because of this. The whole point of scheduling is to be more time efficient, however, having to add alt-text manually, takes that benefit away.

    Adding to the chorus here. This should have been available a while ago. And this shouldn't only be available for Instagram. We need this for all platforms.

    Disappointed to find this isn't already a feature, hope it is on the roadmap asap
