Despite significant developments in the world of automated image captioning, current image captioning approaches are not well-aligned with the needs of people with visual impairments. People who are blind or with low vision share a unique and real challenge –their visual impairment exposes them to a time-consuming, and sometimes, impossible task of learning what content is present in an image without visual assistance. As such, these communities often seek a visual assistant to describe photos they take themselves or find online.
