I love the status plugin. Lately, I've become more aware

I love the status plugin. Lately, I've become more aware of accessibility issues concerning websites. From what I've been able to discern from websites concerning website accessibility for disabled persons, about 50% of it is alt text for images. However, I've noticed that Status plugin produces empty alt text tags. Here in California, it may become more of a legal issue someday (see NFB v. Target). Would it be possible to design the Status plugin to grab some default text for the alt text tags? This is a feature request.
