Hey guys. Yesterday, I came up with an idea about advocating to news organizations about implementing accessibility to the photos they upload to their social media pages. What I am talking about is that the photos doesn't have much information. For example, I follow some meteorologists on Facebook, and guess what? They don't put photo descriptions on their Facebook pages! One photo might say, "No photo description available." Also, I created a poll as well about this topic. You can vote on my website at https://theblindadvocate.wordpress.com/vote/. I am wondering if other people on this mailing list faced similar issues accessing information in photos from news organizations.

"WE ARE THE NATIONAL FEDERATION OF THE BLIND, AND WE CANNOT BE SHUT DOWN!"
-Mark A. Riccobono
"The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day, we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back. Together, with love, hope, and determination, we transform dreams into reality."
