The only thing I don't understand is how on earth does a blind person pick out items that rely on a photograph (clothes etc)...

If you go to Target's home page, you will find, in the left column what appear to be headlines describing sale and special items. They are images - and there is no Alt text. Blind people do shop :-).

There are varying degrees of "blindness", too, so someone looking at one of those images may go, "Oh, wait, is that a red jumper or a parka?" Alt text can help in that respect, if the user has a good text-to-speech tool installed.
