Image ALT text not being recognized

I'm running into a problem when having my website crawled/analyzed. Both the Yoast SEO plugin and my SEMrush website audit tool are giving me errors saying that none of the images on my website have ALT tags. However, when in the media section, each image has a description in the "Alt Text" section.

Can anyone explain this discrepancy? I don't want my page rank to suffer because bots cannot recognize the alt text in my images. Any ideas on this?

Here's my website: http://hoverboardlab.com

Thanks!

    Hi,

    I see the alt tags on the images on your home page. I browsed a couple of other pages and saw them there as well, so I'm not sure why those plugins are saying they are not set.

    Really weird, right? Hm. Oh well, probably just plugin not recognizing it. I'm sure it's fine.

    Yeah, I'm not seeing any issues on my end either. If you find anything else out, let us know.
