Discussion on: Accessible Emoji's

In my experience, I quite often have no idea what people's emoji mean. Even if they are technically "accessible" by having labels, my browsers and devices aren't set up to display that information, so I'm generally lost. I ignore emoji-heavy content or just close the window.

Hi
There is this example I saw on codepen that puts a tooltip over emoji's.
maybe this would help

That's better, but it still shows up one common problem, which is that the one with the tooltip "keyboard" is just a meaningles square. I'd stick my finger in the air and say that one in twenty emoji I see don't render at all, on any site, on any device - they're worse than useless.
