The browser does not use alternate text when sending content to a language translation service or search service. For example, select content containing an image that has alternate text and use the Translate or Search feature.

A blank value is used in place of the image. This results in a loss of content and affects comprehension. This bug also does not encourage authors to use alternate text.

Assuming that this is still relevant, it would be nice if we could fix this.
Yes, this bug is very much relevant. It would be great if this could get fixed as it also adds value to the Google Search engine.
