Adding Alternative Text to Facebook Photos

Did you know you can help those who have a visual impairment enjoy Facebook even more by doing a quick little thing when you post pictures? After you post a picture on your mobile device, click on the picture so that you see black around the pic, then click on the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner. There you will see “Edit Alt Text”. Click on this and add a quick description of the photo. Click save. THEN when folks are using voice over to “read” posts and pics, they will hear your description of the pic. Easy, peasy….it gets quicker the more often you do it! 🙂

    Are you going to post this on Facebook so that we can Scherret within our newsfeed so we can get our cited friends to start following this easy Peezy way to put descriptions on pictures.
