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.

    Please make alt text an option in Later - this is such a great content management system, alt text would make it even better! Come on, Hootsuite offers it - don't make me stick with them!!

    We shouldn't need to use char count (twitter) to make images accessible!

    Not just for Instagram--for the other social platforms Later supports, as well.

    It would save us a lot of time, and we would help the accesibility issue.

    We need alt text for Pinterest as well. I have several followers who have been requesting that I consistently add alt text on both platforms. It boosts visibility as well.

    Adding a vote for this one. This is a basic accessibiliy function and should be made a high priority.

    Why is accessibility for disability access something that even needs to be upvoted? It's honestly disgusting you haven't prioritized this yet & that popular "upvoting" is the only way you'll add a feature. Shameful.

    I really can't believe this isn't available. This would be such a game changer! The whole point of scheduling a post is to..be done with it, I don't want to go back and edit a crucial part like alt text after it has published!
