Twitter makes images more accessible for visually impaired people

Twitter has introduced a transformation for its iOS and Android apps if you want to make pictures more accessible to people who're visually impaired. People who upload pictures to their tweets will quickly be capable of upload choice textual content that describes the images they upload for people who can not see them, and outlines themselves can also be 420 characters lengthy.

From Twitter:

Enable this option by way of the use of the compose symbol descriptions choice within the Twitter app's accessibility settings. The subsequent time you upload a picture to a Tweet, each and every thumbnail within the composer could have an upload description button. Tap it so as to add an outline to the picture. People who're visually impaired may have get entry to to the outline by means of their assistive generation (e.g., monitor readers and braille presentations). Descriptions may also be as much as 420 characters.

Twitter may also be extending this capability to each its REST API and Twitter Cards, as a way to permit each publishers and 3rd-birthday party Twitter shoppers so as to add this capacity to their systems and apps. This new capacity is rolling out throughout iOS and Android now.
