Change media description label to be context-sensitive #12270



Copy link

ThibG commented Oct 31, 2019

This PR changes the text to be:

  • “Describe for the visually impaired” (the current text) for images and video without sound
  • “Describe for people with hearing loss” for audio files
  • “Describe for people with hearing loss or visual impairment” for video files with sound

I am not sure they are the best labels, but they definitely make more sense than having “Describe for the visually impaired” for audio-only uploads. Arguably, describing media isn't only for people with any kind of impairment, it also covers use cases where the person cannot enjoy the media at the moment for external factors.

Alternatively, we could have a generic label.

“Describe for the visually impaired” makes no sense when the uploaded media
is an audio file.
