Images: Record alt/longdesc attributes along with the image
Open, MediumPublic

Description

From gwicke @ https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48958#c7


Some notes re accessibility from a recent meeting with Gerardo Capiel:

  • Long-term we should try to store the alt text or long description along with the image itself, and use that to populate the alt attribute if none was provided explicitly. This requires significant work in core to store metadata along with image pages.
  • For screenreaders it would be good to also provide a longdesc attribute linking to the textual description on the image page.
