Why You Should Use Twitter’s New Accessibility Feature for Blind Users – Even If You’re Not Blind

For a large but often neglected chunk of internet users like me, a core part of the web remains totally off limits.

I’m speaking, of course, about photos the millions of images posted each day on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram that tell stories in richer detail than can be captured in bite-size posts. I miss all of them because I am blind, and the screen-reading software I use to make the web accessible can’t “read” photographs.
