Allowed characters in alt text

I've heard that commas are not allowed in image alt text.

 

Can we get a list of characters that are not allowed in alt text? And is there a character limit?

 

Thank you.

Hello @JaniceC340 ,

 

I reached out to the team that handles our Knowledge Base articles so they could update the one for "Edit an Image's Description or Alt Text" to include this info.

 

At this time, the unsupported characters are: / \ ; : * ? " | < > ,

 

As for the character limit, it is currently 255 - including spaces.
