Since `poster` might not be provided and the first frame may be displayed, or a
poster frame provided by the video container (like M4A), the alternate text for
a poster should not be tied to a poster attribute/tag itself. This implies that
alt text is only applicable if the poster attribute is used and that isnít the
only case.

Suggest just adding alt to <video> itself.

<video src="video.ogg" alt="Roger Bannister completing the 4 minute mile" />
