Twitter Support Jun 18
We're sorry about testing voice Tweets without support for people who are visually impaired, deaf, or hard of hearing. It was a miss to introduce this experiment without this support. Accessibility should not be an afterthought. (1/3)

Adding descriptions to images is a great way to include everyone in your conversation. These descriptions, aka alt-text, enable folks who use screen readers to interpret images in Tweets. Starting today, you no longer need a setting to add alt text and it's available on 📱 & 💻.

We’re to announce that we’re updating the alt-text limit from 420 to 1000 characters and now there’s short auto alt-text for most GIFs

Don’t rely on special characters or whitespace to convey meaning because assistive technologies cannot express shapes or characters drawn in text. Instead, they read individual characters one at a time. Use an image with a clear description instead.

Stick to common characters to reach more people. Characters that appear as an interesting font can cause confusion for readers. They are often not read or take longer to read with assistive technologies. For instance, "Ⓜ︎" is read as "circled m" by a common screen reader.

Providing clear descriptions to images adds context for those using assistive technologies. One example of a clear description is "a NYC subway ad of a Tweet by saying 'The hardest part of dating is pretending that I’m laid back the first 30-45 days'".

Capitalizing words in hashtags helps people using assistive technologies understand them. For example, write instead of so assistive technologies read "black history month" instead of "blackhistorymonth".
