Someone mentioned the Diagram Center's Poet site as a good place to learn how to do image descriptions.

So I was surprised to see a thumbnail of a flow chart describing the process, linking to a bigger JPG file, whose alt text isn't particularly helpful: "decision_tree_flow_chart_thumb"

@christianp hah. Nice find. I've become very skeptical of all things Benetech. Beyond massive PR, I've only ever seen vaporware and/or presenting other people's OSS as their own. The people I've worked with were also fairly incompetent which doesn't help. It's incredible how they managed to corner this market anyway.

@pkra I'm not impressed. The "training tool" isn't great either: a few of the activities I tried were multiple-choice questions, with no feedback about why an incorrect answer was incorrect. How does that help me learn?

@christianp yup. par for the course with Benetech projects. But I'm sure it got them the next grant or something.

@christianp Shameless self promotion:
Have a look at this diagram center report: diagramcenter.org/diagram-repo

All diagrams are fully accessible. And the maths of course, too.
