Hi Liddy,

Besides the standard "accessibility" patterns provided already at the level of HTML (like the alt attribute), you can use schema.org to publish additional meta-data for improved accessibility by simply attaching the name and description properties for text to the respective entity. 

So simply mark up the image as a http://schema.org/ImageObject and attach a description using the description property and a caption using the caption property.
