This is so cool!! And thank you Tami! She reads the blog and shares info with me.
New feature on Facebook, world's biggest social media network, that'll now allow a blind user to hear descriptions of their photos! I love it! I know I can sure use this while I'm on my iphone since I can hardly see any photos from Facebook on my iphone. I read I'll just have to turn on the Voiceover feature and I'm good to go. It'll look like the picture below, where it's describing what's in the picture, but only at a certain specificity. Heck, it's still so helpful!

Matt King is Facebook's first blind computer engineer, and as a member of the accessibility team, is revolutionizing Facebook for blind people and individuals who are visually impaired. Now on your iphone or ipad, you can turn on your Voiceover feature and begin to "hear' your photos!
