Image descriptions are short paragraphs that verbally describe the appearance of images for the benefit of Web visitors who are unable to see them. They serve the same role in the visual arts as audio descriptions do for the performing arts, since both provide participants with a verbal impression of things they cannot perceive visually. As the examples below demonstrate, Access Art provides a description for every image, whether it is a simple graphic or a complex picture.
ALL Nature seems at work.? Slugs leave their lair? The bees are stirring?birds are on the wing? And WINTER slumbering in the open air, Wears on his smiling face a dream of Spring! And I, the while, the sole unbusy thing, Nor honey make, nor pair, nor build, nor sing.
