About Describe Me

Describe Me asks you to write alternative text (alt-text) for images to make our Collections Online more useful for people who are blind or have low vision.

Alt-text is text associated with an image that conveys the same essential information as the image. It is important for people who use screen readers or view websites in text-only format. By writing a short description of what you see, you’ll help to make Collections Online more useable and accessible.
