You're dead wrong.

The Bruce Lindsay Maguire vs Sydney Organising Committee for the Olympic
Games case was somewhat of a landmark case in the sphere of web
accessibility. Although Maquire vs SOCOG only sets a legal precedent in
Australia, it considered to be a model case by many internationally.

As a result of the case, SOCOG was legally obliged to add alt text to all
images on its website and plain links in places where it had previously
used a less accessible form of navigation.
