 The image slideshow provides figcaption descriptions, but no alt
 attributes. I agree that under the current system the value provided is
 better presented as a caption than an alt attribute, but the alt attribute
 should still be present with an empty value to prevent the src value from
 potentially being read by screen readers.

 The alt attribute in the thumbnail controls should be populated with the
 caption text, as well.
