I can understand making some changes in batch, like creating thumbnail
images and adding copyright information to comments but adding an alt=
description for blind viewers would have to be done an image at a time.
I presume that is how news pictures are annotated. I also teach people
to check compression image by image for important images. (If they are
on one of my web sites, they are important!)

Right on. I used to program for a living but when people started
programming in C, I gave up. It is as if a simple dinner recipe started

"First make a fry pan.
The coal is in that mine.
The bauxite is in the other mine.
Go dig."
