Hi Cindy,

Here's another resource that might provide you with some guidance:

Effective Practices for Description of Science Content within Digital
Talking Books

http://ncam.wgbh.org/experience_learn/educational_media/stemdx

"This website provides both general guidelines that should be followed when
describing STEM images and many examples of how the guidelines can be
implemented. The guidelines are the result of a seminal 4-year effort
encompassing multiple surveys with describers and with students and
scientists with vision loss to research preferred practices for description
of visual information in textbooks and journals."

cheers
