Description

Designer's statement: In this paper I describe the need for and process of making Depict, a crowd-sourced image description tool to aid visually impaired web users to browse the web with ease. A big problem this community is faced with is the issue of lack of accessibility on the web. One example of this is the misuse or failure to use alt tags in HTML to describe images. Depict is a two-part project composed of a browser extension and website that provides visually impaired web users with a platform to request image descriptions from sighted web users.
