Chrome allows screen reader users to get image descriptions from Google

via:cnBeta.COM     time:2019/3/16 0:03:38     readed:190

Visually impaired people use screen readers on their devices to listen to content. Screen readers often ignore images that do not describe or lack ALT text, and continue to read the text in Web pages. Now, Google wants to provide an option for unmarked images in the context menu of Chrome Browser (currently available in the Canary version of Chrome Browser) so that users can request that Google provide useful descriptions of images.

If the user agrees, the image will be sent to Google for scanning, and then the Google instructions will be provided to the user. If the image does not find a useful description, Chrome will try to provide a user with one. In the Chrome Canary version, right-click on the image. If a screen reader is installed in the user's computer, the user will notice that there is an "Get Image Description from Google" option in the context menu.
