The Token Tooltip text will appear below a token when the mouse is held over it. The feature was released Oct. 5th, 2021.

This text box will allow you to add tooltips that can be read by a screen reader to a token or a card. After entering the text for the tooltip make sure there is a checkmark in the box labeled “Show”. There is a 150 character limit for text entered into the tooltip text field.
