Years ago we dreamed of a diffusion cycle where ALT text and
descriptions of visuals would be created once by some cyberAngel when
a person with a disability asked for sighted help and then associated
with other occurrences of the same image by some sort of an indexing
scheme such as hashes.

Now an ambitious European project aims to remove the need for a 
cooperating cyberAngel.
