Add alt text at the file level


I would like to be able to add alt text to an image at the "File" level.  In other words, I would like to be able to add alt text to the image one time and have that apply to all instances of the image that are embedded (I am specifically thinking of icons that are embedded throughout the course multiple times).

I agree.  This would help save a lot of time and pain for those of us who use images in our pages.  Thank you for bringing this to our attention!
