I'm a great believer in managing data at source. It would be very useful to be able to describe an image for visually-impaired web users in Lightroom and have this metadata embedded in the image, so that platforms like WordPress can read it and add it automatically to the Alt field in its media library database on upload. I know you have custom fields for websites like 500px, so I hope this wouldn't be too difficult

Are you sure that this would even work? From what I know about photo metadata, it seems very unlikely that a web site would do this. Where would you put the metadata in the photo? SeeĀ http://www.iptc.org/std/photometadata/specification/IPTC-PhotoMetadata.
