This report provides WAI consensus recommendations for alternative text support in HTML 5. On January 14, 2009 the WAI-CG created a Task Force on Alternative Text, to consider the various alternative text approaches discussed over the past few years, and to develop consensus WAI recommendations for appropriate handling of alternative text in HTML5. These recommendations have been reviewed by the following WAI Working Groups: Authoring Tools Working Group (AUWG), Protocols & Formats Working Group (PFWG), User Agent Working Group (UAWG), and Web Content (WCAG WG).
