@lynnesbian i think you're being too harsh on yourself!! i DM ocr-bot if i'm posting an image with lots of text, so that i can copy-paste and edit the text field. it's so much less exhausting than trying to type it all out on phone, and i get an accurate text input for the caption box!! so, it's useful to me, and actively helps me caption better :)

@scribblefrog @lynnesbian this is brilliant, I'm going to have to try that. My biggest barrier is that if the phone is at like a 45° angle and decides to flip to landscape mode while I'm adding an image description, Tusky just closes the box without saving and I have to start over. This should help significantly with longer text snippets.
