Alt Text: Engaged prevents alt/title
text tooltips from getting in your way
until you explicitly ask for them. And
when you ask for them by holding down
(what else?) the ALT key, it shows them

Alt Text: Engaged addresses three

1. When alt text is annoying: Tooltips
on major news websites are
delightful. Their hobbies include
covering up text you’re trying to
read and gleefully staying put until
you figure out how far you need to
move your mouse to get them to go
away. Ever tried moving your mouse
over one of them in the vain hope
that it would disappear? Oh, good,
that nudged it a barely perceptible
distance. And look, it’s *still*
over the text you’re trying to read!
But at least when they’re off to the
side of the screen they don’t do
anything distracting. Like
fade-animate in.
2. When alt text is useful but hard to
get at: Sometimes you’re actually
wanting alt text to show up. Maybe
you read web comics. Nerd. You place
your mouse over the stick figures…
wait for it… nothing. Oh, the
window lost focus. Okay. Click. Oh

3. In all cases: Thankfully it’s obvious
where and when alt text will pop up.
Apart from every single situation in

We can do better. Alt Text: Engaged
probably does, in fact. Here’s how it
deals with the above problems:

1. Chrome will never again show alt text
until you’re holding down the ALT
key. It will always display in the
same place: the bottom-right of the
screen (next to that other
rarely-needed text: link URLs).
2. As soon as the ALT key hits, Chrome
will immediately show the alt text of
whatever’s directly under your mouse
(if alt text exists). If your window
has lost focus, you’ll know within
milliseconds because:
3. When the ALT key is down, the
location of every element on the
screen which contains alt text is
highlighted in semi-transparen
