Add a typeof attribute (this could also be done using the role attribute) to
the <img> element that allows a space seperated list of keywords (defined in
the spec or in a register referenced by the spec) to indicate what type of
image it is

example:

<img typeof="chart">

<img typeof="photograph chart">

<img typeof="photograph painting">

This information could then be used by browsers and AT to inform users about
image type.
