vision impairment is not binary, people are not either totally without sight or
have 20/20 vision, there are may gardiations. a good proportion of people who
are categorised as 'legally blind' have some vision, but  rely on a screen
reader  for the majority of their interaction with web content, when they see a
fuzzy blobs on an image whether it be a video poster frame or on a canvas or an
image, the provision of a text alternative may well be useful in helping them
make sense of what those blobs are.

Also why wouldn't a blind user want to know?
