hi all here is my review:

Map Element
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html5-20110525/the-map-element.html#the-map-element

"The alt<http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html5-20110525/the-map-element.html#attr-area-alt>attribute
may be left blank if there is another
area<http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html5-20110525/the-map-element.html#the-area-element>element
in the same image
map<http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html5-20110525/the-map-element.html#image-map>that
points to the same resource and has a non-blank
alt<http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html5-20110525/the-map-element.html#attr-area-alt>attribute."

As implemented by browsers this results in screen readers announcing the
presence of a link but providing no information about the link target.
it is noted that a bug has been filed about this issue
