instead of hounding people for not providing image descriptions, reply to their post with a transcript, if you have the time and desire to
it indirectly encourages them to put a description on future posts and it actually helps people instead of just being more negative energy
and if the person didn't include an image description because /they/ didn't have the energy to, instead of guilting them for it, you are, again, helping, rather than just contributing more negativity
