Campaign to make pictures accessible for the visually impaired

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:20 pm on 7 October 2019

Social media is no longer just about writing down your feelings, photos are often the main form of communication these days - thanks in large part to Instagram and Snap Chat. 

But what about those who can't see these pictures, how do they get involved? 

Blind and Low Vision NZ is calling for everyone to get onboard with something called the #AltTextForAll Movement to help visually impaired people participate online. The campaign launches tomorrow - the website alttextforall.com will go live in the morning. Dr Chandra Harrison helps companies improve their accessibility and explains how it works.
