Hi Roberto:

Thanks for this. I guess the question is: how close should we stay to 
WCAG? WCAG has a guideline: "Provide text alternatives for all non-text 
content" and in their success criteria they clearly differentiates 
between "presenting information" and "responding to user input".

I'm wondering whether your suggested phrase "used to convey information" 
might be misinterpreted as excluding the functional objects?

Cheers,
Jan
