Instagram is now using AI to describe photos for users with visual impairments

Instagram today announced that it will introduce new features for people with visual impairment. The first is to use & # 39; auto-fallback text & # 39 ;. Then someone reads the description of the sound aloud as they navigate through the feed, navigation page, or profile. We use object recognition technology to generate this technique. The company also introduces "custom alternative text" so that users can add more descriptive captions to their photos, so that people who use screen readers (software that describes the elements displayed on the screen) There is.

Although this is the first piece of Instagram, Facebook uses AI to describe the pictures to the blind for years. This video gives the visually impaired the feeling that the app has been used so far. It is not the smoothest experience and these new features will definitely make it easier and more convenient.
