I have written some stuff down about how figure and figcaption could work
for screen reader users, as currently it is not accessibility supported in
browsers or AT.
I think there may be the need to create a new role to represent figure,
probably an ARIA landmark role.

I am asking for feedback from users and implementors.

any feedback would be appreciated
