# desc

The desc element provides an accessible, long-text description of any SVG container element or graphics element. Text in a desc element is not rendered as part of the graphic. If the element can be described by visible text, it is possible to reference that text with the aria-describedby attribute.

Usually, this element is create with:

const desc = parentElement.add('desc')

It's possible create as a disconnected element with gySVG('desc') and attach it to the SVG document with .attachTo().
