That's not what I meant...
Preformatted text wouldn't be read out by screenreaders, the alt text would.

The "data:text/gemini-metadata+json;charset=ut......." is the part

"Welcome!" would be ignored (unless it detects that it's ok to read
out, or the user says they want it read out).

OFC this all depends on the implementation of screenreader.
