Zucherberg has stated in many different occasions that his goal for Facebook is that it is so accessible that everyone on this planet will able to use it. The vision with this upgrade is that Facebook may adapt to ones disabilities as is the case with millions of people; blind people in this particular case.

Facebook has been clear that this technology is just being fully developed and it even intends to answer questions about pictures or specific posts to users, but it is trying to avoid mistakes like the recent case where Google,s automated voice system accidentally compared black couples to gorillas which forced them to issue a public apology to avoid a public lawsuit.
