I don't even know how to answer this question. Other than segregating me from
the users who can visually perceive the content, which is a civil rights and
not a technical issue...

As I explained above, the author is setting a poster.  There is therefor a
visual image on the page, it conveys meaning (or at least has the ability to
convey meaning), I want the meaning as much as someone who can see the image.
