Memes have become a part of culture and communication both online and off. Due to their visual nature, memes present major accessibility concerns for students who are blind or have low vision. While memes are usually considered unessential and solely for humor, their use often builds connections within the learning community; therefore, those who cannot glean the full meaning often feel left out.

Memes can go viral quickly but also have usage fade very quickly, so using popular and relevant memes can be tricky. Another point to consider is if the meme contains a person, did that person give consent for their photograph to be used publicly? For this reason, the examples below only contain one person who knew they were being photographed for a public campaign.
