  • Component changed from General to Media

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 5.2
  • Owner set to afercia
  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Version set to trunk

Thanks @chetan200891! This was missed in [44900] which is landing in WordPress 5.2.

As it's a simple, self-contained change, and brings parity with the changes introduced in [44900], I'd like to propose to move it to 5.2 consideration.

  • Keywords commit added; needs-refresh removed

46875.2.diff builds on the previous patch and:

  • places the alt text field as first field, as done in [44900]
  • adds aria-describedby
  • adjusts the CSS
  • since I was there... fixes a weird indentation after [42343]

#5 @afercia

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

In 45158:

Accessibility: Improve the image "Alternative Text" field in the Edit Media screen.

Brings parity with the changes for the Media Views introduced in [44900].

  • moves the alt text field to the top as first field
  • adds an explanatory text with a link pointing to the W3C "alt decision tree" tutorial
  • adds aria-describedby to target the explanatory text
  • adjusts the CSS and indentation

Props chetan200891.
Fixes #46875.
