Twitter has for some time now had a tool. That allows users to add descriptions to the images they upload to their platform. This device, barely known, is called “Write descriptions of images”. And that is focused on making accessible the pictures that users upload. So that they can enjoy those people who suffer vision problems. By default, this tool is disabled.
Twitter allows descriptions in images for people with vision problems
Also, the company has a support page in different languages. In which it establishes the necessary indications for users to enable and use this tool, both through the Twitter.com website and official applications for Android and iOS. As well as well as through the different accessibility applications available for desktops and mobile devices.
According to Rob Long, a Twitter user with vision problems, it is an easy-to-use tool. That will allow people like him to interact with the images that users upload.
Both the activation and use of the tool takes a few seconds and, as Long points out in his tweet. That makes a big difference for users with vision problems, obtaining an experience that allows them to “see” the uploaded images. That is best.
