 I attended WordCamp Portland and one of the sessions I sat in on had to do
 with accessibility. During the question and answer portion it was asked if
 anyone had seen a plugin that would enable a longdesc attribute to be
 generated for an image using the description field from the media library.
 No one had. I suggested that I had an answer and that it should be pretty
 easy to code. I tested my idea when I got home and created a successful
 plugin that enables the attribute to be appended as well as an html
 document to support it. Please see attached.

 I really don't know the best way to handle this modifying core files. But
 I thought I would share the idea here in hopes that someone who is
 comfortable might be able to work it in.
