Extended Image Description Guidelines Update

2015 September 30
by Amaya Webster

The DIAGRAM Center has long sought to break down the barriers in education caused by inaccessible images by creating tools like PoetMathML Cloud, and the Accessible Image Sample Book. Now, in partnership with the National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM), we have created a new resource: DIAGRAM Image Description Guidelines 2015. With more than 70 pages of image description guidance, the new Guidelines include best practices for describing a wide range of image types, including art, photos, cartoons, chemistry, mathematics, maps, and much more. The guidelines are available to download as a word document at, or can be read online at
