When a link has an image with no accessible text available, prompt user (and require) to provide meaningful description in the context of the link…?High

Provide options for setting and editing whitespace around imagesLow
For decorative images, automatically use empty alt text
For simple & complex images, prompt/instruct user to enter appropriate alt text
For complex images, prompt/instruct user to enter full description
Do some level of sanity check/warning when user enters very long description but chooses in-page display of information
Provide obvious help/instruction on why and how to use images (Note: Help menu)
Check for images as link content and prompt/remediate accordingly
Consider HTML 5 title/summary detail combo to provide d-link style information for an image (issues with providing polyfills scripts automatically and making it configurable to auto use on/off or specify a different polyfill script)
