Making social media more accessible

Saw this on Twitter and I think it is really important so am sharing widely:

Basically, this is referurgint referring to a web site from the Univeristy of Minnesota’s Accessible U project providing guidance for how to make one’s social media postings more accessible.

Most social media platforms don’t let you add alt text, but you can and should describe what’s happening in the picture for all of your photo-based posts. Be thoughtful about how you write hyperlinks as well.

This is definitely worth a look and trying to incorporate the suggestions.
