One of my favorite things to come out of the #JWST first images and data this summer was the awesome alt text image descriptions produced by our talented team of writers, educators, and scientists at @spacetelescope.

We received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback.

I hope we gave people using screenreaders the oppertunity to experience the awe and wonder I feel when I look at space images.
