Hi all - as some of y'all know, I tweet a lot...:)  In recent years, it's becoming less text-based.  More information, jokes, political statements, poetry, deep thoughts are being conveyed via images - photos, GIFs, videos, and more and more often emoji.  People have taken to posting photos holding up signs.  You only get the meaning if you can read what the image says or the emoji stands for.

Sometimes the information is law-related.

So, quick question - do the technologies for the blind read emojis and what signs in photos say - text in images?

If so, what are they?

Thanks,
Lyo.
