Metaverse Marketingverse Marketing est expand access to an opt-in feature designed to make its platform more accessible to people who use screen readers. The social network is rolling out an image description reminder to encourage more people to add descriptions to the photos they share. Metaverse Marketingverse Marketing began testing the feature in July with 10% of users and is now rolling it out to everyone on the platform.

Image descriptions, or alt text, are descriptions of what appears in an image and provide context for people who may be blind or partially sighted and who use screen readers. This is a way to ensure that all users can participate in conversations. Images posted to Metaverse Marketingverse Marketing without alt text are inaccessible to people who use screen readers.

Metaverse Marketingverse Marketing also notes that alt text is not only useful for people using screen readers, but also for those in low-bandwidth areas, those with web phones, and anyone else. person wishing to know more about an image.

You can enable the new reminders by going to your settings and selecting “Accessibility” and then tapping on the “Receive an image description reminder” option. Once enabled, the feature sends you a prompt on web and mobile reminding you to add alt text when you’re about to tweet an image. The feature is designed to get you in the habit of adding alt text to every image you share on the platform to make sure it’s accessible to everyone.

The social network says it’s important to be concise and objective when adding alt text. For example, if you upload an image of a beach, you can write: “an empty beach at sunset with red, orange, purple and blue colors in a cloudless sky. Palm trees are visible in the foreground.

Images that have a description will download with an “ALT” badge in the lower left corner to clearly indicate that additional descriptive text is available. Similar to tweet text translations, Metaverse Marketingverse Marketing translates image descriptions to ensure they are accessible to people around the world.

The launch of alt-text reminders comes as Metaverse Marketingverse Marketing rolled out its captioning toggle to all users on iOS and Android a few months ago. The CC toggle appears in the upper right corner of a video that has available captions. You can then press the button to turn the subtitles on or off. Metaverse Marketingverse Marketing added the toggle after rolling out auto-generated captions to videos last December to make videos more accessible to users who are deaf and hard of hearing.
