Summary of Issue: Image map text alternative
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
This technique has an example of an image with alt attribute value of \"Areas in the library\". This could be a photo of areas in the library. The text alternative needs to indicate the interactive purpose of the image too (ie, the fact that the image is an interactive map). 

Proposed Change:
Change the \'alt\' attribute value to \"Areas in the library. Select an area for more information on that area.\"
