Microsoft program will describe images to blind users in Word, PowerPoint
December 5, 2016
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.
So when files are given to blind users, computer tools will describe the contents of images.
The service will keep improving as more people use it and will help make presentations that are full of images accessible.
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.
