Facebook allows you to include a caption hidden in the photos with the details of the image so that it is understood by people with visual impairment through screen reading apps. The feature, called Alternative Text, can be found within the image editing options and used even after media publishing. The native function eliminates the need to use hashtags like "#PraCegoVer", which narrates the images by the traditional captions of the photos.

However, this description may be limited and lacking in information. With the editing feature, anyone can write about the content and leave the description of the complete image.
