Summary0002449: alt attributes for area tags in cmaps
DescriptionThank you for your work on these awesome tools!

It would be nice if you could re-enable alt attributes for area tags in cmaps.

As far as I can see, they were removed (set to alt="") in 2004 because of Internet Explorer's former misuse of alt attributes as tooltips.[1] With IE Version 8 this browser seems to work as expected and uses the title attribute as tooltip.[2]

This change would:
- improve support for people with visual disability
- support users of some text browsers
- make the image contents better indexable by search engines

A nice addon would be to also enable configuring the alt attribute via HTML-like labels like <TD alt="something">.

Thanks for considering!
