Facebook never fail. They’re always coming up with new ideas on how to create a platform for everyone. There really is no wonder why they’re the social media King and why the others are just pretenders.
Their latest feature is an automated piece of code that recognises a screen reader filter being used, generally by visually impaired people, and then enacting a description of the a photo with large text and big items that give a description of the photo to help the person “see” what is it they’re looking at.
The software has been coded to recogonise over 100 different items, including food, people, vehicles, cars, trees, the sky, space and even people’s expressions.
This is just one step further for the California-based giant who already is thinking outside the box with a possible virtual reality feature coming down the tracks in the near future. Watch this space.
