Hi @ManyQuestions
looking at the Wordpress documentation it looks like there’s the alt_text argument you could use.

You could either (1) try to send that attribute when you are creating the media or (2) update the media just after you have created it (using this endpoint) and add the alt_tag.

Media creation: Media | REST API Handbook | WordPress Developer Resources
Media update: Media | REST API Handbook | WordPress Developer Resources

Let me know if that helps!

I got it to work in a separate request note, how do I upload everything together?
