Free accessibility tips from my wife, a professional UX designer who does a lot of accessibility work:
1. Keep your image descriptions short, simple, and descriptive. Try to limit it to a single tweet-length.
2. Don’t do both alt-text AND a visible image description. This will result in screenreaders reading your caption twice.
3. Use camel case in your hashtags.

We have public holidays for the British new year (which happens in the middle of winter there, as Matariki does here) so let's have some for our own too! If you support this, here's a petition you can sign:
