Hi James,
thanks, I had seen he use of ,<legend> markup previously, and in this
case it would  do away with the need for aria-descibed as the <legend>
could be mapped to MSAA description.

or this:

<h2>Photograph 2</h2>
<img src=321098412.jpeg alt="">
<p>View North East from 23 High Street.</p>

regards
steve
