In order to be accessibility compliant on a web site one should always use an alt text tag for an image. Is there any way that FCKEditor can require the tag be entered when an image is inserted?

[3512] just brings feature parity with v2 so now an empty alt is generated by default, but real accessibility requires that each image must have a valid alt description. Putting alt="" just fools the machine validators, but this ticket is requesting than when a user creates an image, he must provide an appropriate alt description. (of course, as an option because not all sites might want to force this requirement on their users, although this is basic for accessibility)
