Not really a solution, a mitigation. Technically adding alt text from 
gleaned ancilliary information. An image with alt="DSC1114325.jpg 
uploaded on 22 June 2021" still would fail as it's not descriptive. Same 
if the users didn't provide other information, like a caption, which 
again they can't be forced to do in any way that guarantees that it 
actually described the image properly.
