I would suggest "Report" as ALT text, but so far as I know type="image" is
well-supported. Note that the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines say not
to use type=image with image maps (especially server side maps) - it is
better to create separate buttons

  When creating a form i have a question on the type of inputs allowed, 
  1.  TYPE=SUBMIT 
  2.  TYPE="image" 
  
  For the long list of browsers that we have available to everyone, are there
  any browsers that do not accept the INPUT  TYPE="image".  Please see the
  code below if you need to conceptualize.
  
  
  <INPUT tabindex="5" TYPE=SUBMIT VALUE="Report" NAME="report.x">
  <INPUT tabindex="2" TYPE="image" NAME="report" SRC="images/menu5_main1.gif"
  ALT="Link for Graphics Browsers: Report a find." BORDER=0>
  
  appreciate everyone's comments.
