Subject: Investigating the proposed alt attribute recommendations in HTML 5


If the developers of flickr.com or Photobucket were to implement the
recommendations regarding the omission of the alt attribute within the
current HTML 5 draft what are the potential effects upon the accessibility
of the sites for users of assistive technology such as screen readers?
