Internet Memes Accessible to Visually Impaired

Science Innovations

A new technology developed by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University automatically identifies memes and applies pre-written templates to add descriptive alt text and making them intelligible via existing assistive technologies for the visually impaired. With a conventional screen reader software it is not possible for visually impaired to read memes. Memes are images that are copied and then overlaid with slight variations of text.
