From our first dialogue, Advancing Accessibility and Inclusion in Social Media - The User Experience, we received a number of ideas from users on how social media accessibility and usability could be improved. Examples of some of these ideas include:
- Create an automatic process for adding alt text to images on social media
- Make close captions or real live captions standard features on images with sound
- Increase accessibility awareness and training for designers and developers
- Allow for the ability to choose colors and font sizes
- Offer different display options
We are excited to work together to improve social media accessibility. Please take the time to share your thoughts and submit your ideas. Don't forget to vote and comment on ideas contributed by others. As you contribute to this dialogue, please consider the following questions:
Question 1:How should social media companies go about integrating these ideas (and ones like them) into the design and development of social media online tools and apps?
Question 2:What are the most effective ways the social media industry could engage with the disability community for user feedback and ideas? Please share any best practices.
