Twitter Feature Lets The Blind ‘See’ Your Images

A little-known feature can describe help visually impaired people to better understand pictures on Twitter.

Anyone can enable the Image Description feature on Twitter’s app and website by going to Settings and Privacy, entering the Accessibility menu and checking the Compose Image Descriptions box.

The next time you add an image to one of your tweets, an Add Description button will appear at the bottom of it. 

Hitting it will take you to an Image Description screen, where you’ll be able to add a description of the picture – also known as alternative text or alt text – for visually impaired users.
