  • Can the tags entered be useful in creating descriptive text descriptions of internet video, in order to improve accessibility of video for visually impaired users?
  • Pitfalls = basic level tags. By avoiding pitfalls it is hoped that more descriptive tags will be entered.
  • Assess the quality of the tags based on their semantic level. Basic level being of lower quality than, subordinate level, descriptive tags.
  • Example: A video of 2 cats chasing each other up a tree. Basic tags might be Cat, Tree, Chase. More descriptive tags could include the breed of cat, whether it is in a garden, street or park, colour of the cats, the season, an indication of the weather, snow, sunny. Any other distinguishing objects in the video.
