When we first developed Coyote to enable web users who are blind or have low vision to “see” images on the web, we didn't anticipate just how valuable this layer of description would be for showing all web users a new way to approach artworks and images on our website. As part of a recent web update, we unveiled a new feature that allows sighted visitors to view these descriptions as well. On tablets and desktops, you can activate the visible Coyote layer by clicking “Image Descriptions” underneath the menu on the left.
