This file is from Wikimedia Commons and may be used by other projects. The description on its file description page there is shown below.


English: When images are used to illustrate Wikimedia articles, but have inadequate descriptions, the article is considered low in its accessibility for readers with visual impairments who use screen readers. The majority of images in Commons and on our articles have limited or missing text descriptions. Our hope is that, through collaborations between people and organizations who care about improving accessibility, we can create systems for making sure all incoming images, and those already on commons, get adequate descriptions, suitable for not just our English readers, but translatable for all of our movement projects.
