request for advice from anyone who is vision impaired 

Heya folks,

I was just curious, what makes for a good image description

I typically try to just give context for an image without being too literal about every detail but I don't actually know if that is good or useful

Does anyone who makes use of image descriptions have any advice for what is most useful or things to avoid?

@mal The easiest way to learn how to do alt text is just say out loud succinctly what you see.

For instance: “Our CEO shakes hands with OtherCompany's CEO”.

Some people say it's better to add the image type after that, say “(photo)”. I tend to do it beforehand, because I feel the context is clearer that way.

Main question is: how would you like to be described this image if you couldn't load it in your browser? Helps a lot.

@mal (This being said, I'm vision impaired but don't use alt text for myself, as one eye is still acute. But I have blind and very bad sighted friends and colleagues.)
