request for advice from anyone who is vision impaired
I was just curious, what makes for a good image description
I typically try to just give context for an image without being too literal about every detail but I don't actually know if that is good or useful
Does anyone who makes use of image descriptions have any advice for what is most useful or things to avoid?

It is true there's no one answer; people's needs (and access to software) are different. Our tastes are different too. I do think not saying the type of media is better, because the software tends to handle that better than alt text does.
P.S. In English, "ill sighted" is not the phrase to use; we visually impaired people use "visually impaired."
