Twitter introduces Accessibility section for charts for the visually impaired


Expanding their accessibility tools, Twitter has announced the inclusion of a new Accessibility section for charts that will help serve the visually impaired.

On 7th June Julius Sohn, Product Designer – Twitter, shared an announcement introducing the new Accessibility section for charts which is a step forward in being inclusive towards the visually impaired audience.

The newly added function will provide translations to the charts of Twitter Analytics in audio format for visually impaired users. Julius further shared a demo clip of the update that showcases how the update will look and sound to the users.

The new update will translate the chart in an automated high pitched sound that would be accompanied by a written description of the chart as well.
