Hi,

Here is the update B.2.4 proposal from Jan and Tim. SC1 has received the 
most work:


B.2.4 Assist authors to ensure that equivalent alternatives
for non-text objects are accurate and fit the context. [Priority 1]

Rationale:
Improperly generated equivalent alternatives can create accessibility 
problems and interfere with accessibility checking.

Success Criteria:

1. If the authoring tool offers text alternatives for non-text objects, 
then the source of the alternatives for each object must be one or more 
of the following:
- alternatives previously entered by *authors* for the non-text object
(e.g. by the same author, or another author on a collaborative system)
- alternatives stored with the non-text object in image databases
Text alternatives from other sources, such as generated from the 
non-text object file name, are not acceptable.

2. The tool must allow the author to accept, modify, or reject 
equivalent alternatives.
