Online Game Aims to Make the Web More Accessible
Nov 28, 2006
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have designed Phetch, an online game that aims to challenges players to describe pictures randomly selected on the Internet. The game will apply these captions to the pictures to improve the accessibilty of Web sites using these images for visually impaired people who use screen reading software. As multiple descriptions for individual images are collected by Phetch, they are tested with single players to produce an accurate caption. Play for free at the Web site below!
