    initial v1  
    11I don't think this is the right solution. It'd be neither correct from the a11y perspective, nor good SEO. Also, I wouldn't be surprise if Google was simply ignoring poor alt attributes (which equal the file name or repeat multiple times).

    3 So, a solution for this problem is really forcing the user to type the alt. Only this will produce any value. For instance, Accessibility Checker can be used for that. See the last screencast in http://cksource.com/blog/5-Tips-on-How-to-Improve-Accessibility-When-Creating-Your-Web-Content-in-a-WYSIWYG-Editor. It can not only check that alt is set, but also gives the option to quickly set it.

    55Also, there's a pretty interesting blog post about the relation between a11y and SEO – http://cksource.com/blog/Accessibility-usability-and-SEO-go-hand-in-hand-a-talk-with-David-Carralon
