what i meant was a method included as part of the canvas API, a way of
inputting text is provided, why not a way of outputting it for fallback
purposes? I am attempting to suggest ways to make it as easy as possible for
authors to provide the content required for accessibility. we all know unless
its easy it won't be done.
