Alt text on Viva Connections cards

New Contributor

I ran an accessibility checker tool on a SharePoint page that includes the Viva Connections dashboard and one of the critical issues it highlighted was a lack of alt text on the images in some Viva cards. When you use some of the large cards, e.g. the web link card or the Image template type on card designer, you can set a custom image to take up half the card - but there isn't a field for specifying the alternate text on this image. 

 

Does anyone know a workaround to set alt text on these images? Or is this something that Microsoft are working on enabling? Because as it stands, it's a pretty big flaw in Viva's accessibility.
