example 2.5 has alt text:
alt="Bar Chart showing average rainfall in millimetres by country and season.">

the long description follows in a paragraph...there should be a reference to
the long description in the alt text, given that there is no programmatic
association between the image and the long description.

suggest something like:

alt="Bar Chart showing average rainfall in millimetres by country and season.
<add>long description immediately below</add>"
