Suppose you could capture the sound of an image say a bullet or a
picture of a tea kettle and put that sound in a wave file?  Suppose
further that you could then identify that sound once and then let it
stand for its self due to its uniqueness?  would it be appropriate to
use it as an alt tag considering that some actually many people will
not hear it but for those who can process and hear it, it would render
well and uniquely?  consider also that we would have to have a caption
for it for those who cannot process auditory information due to the
physical limitation of their disability?

Just another idea.
