Alt text for images?

A reviewer of my tour map pointed out that there appears to be no alt text attribute for the images when the mouse is hovered over the image. That probably makes it non-compliant with Section 508 for the visually impaired. I don't have a screen reader myself, so I can't check what might get read out to the listener as they tab through the elements. Is there any chance that the name and/or description would substitute for alt text? Or can I enable that attribute somehow and include the text in the csv that I am using to create the points in my map?
