It not always easy to view media descriptions ("alt text") on Mastodon, so I made toot.pics to solve that problem.

You can add toot.pics to your device's share sheet using the instructions on the site. This makes media descriptions easy to view in any app that supports sharing posts.

More details are on toot.pics. If you have any questions or notice anything amiss please let me know!

The share sheet is now displayed over the post. A red arrow points to a "toot.pics" option in the share sheet.

The toot.pics site is now open to the post, which displays the post and media descriptions in full.
