Microsoft program will describe images to blind users in Word, PowerPoint


Microsoft will launch a feature for apps like Microsoft Word and PowerPoint that will automatically suggest image and captions, called alt-text for blind users.

Facebook too announced a similar feature for photo captions this year. The feature will be available in Office and PowerPoint on personal computers from next year.
