Facebook launches new accessible features
February 6, 2017
A new feature on Facebook allows photos to be described in words.
The descriptions can be heard without screen readers. Pictures will now be explained to users in more detail.
This feature is to ensure that Facebook is more accessible for users with visual impairments.
Those who are visually impaired will come to know which of their friends are on the social networking website.
A search feature has also been added so that one can find pictures with specific criteria. For example, search for 'black shirt photo,' will look for pictures that have someone wearing a shirt of that particular colour even if it was not tagged with the information.
