Five kinds of ‘alt’ text

This discussion of alt-text, on the website of a London-based usability consulting and usability training company, offers that there are five different classes of "alt" text. Each of 5 different types of images requires a different approach to writing the ‘alt’ attribute. Some comments were solicited (from February - April 2011) and can be reviewed, however the "comments section" is now closed to further input.

I, myself, was always recognized . . . as the "slow one" in the family. It was quite true, and I knew it and accepted it. Writing and spelling were always terribly difficult for me. My letters were without originality. I was . . . an extraordinarily bad speller and have remained so until this day.
