Thanks for the correction. I should have researched further. I was unaware that input was the only form element that supported the alt attribute. I was working on a form recently and the first thing I tried was adding the alt attribute, the form passed the accessibility check. I see now that the form passed because it was checked against 508 Standards, Section 1194.22 "(a) A text equivalent for every non-text element shall be provided". So basically the alt attribute is only tricking the checker. I see now that the label tag should be used with the id attribute.

It does not label an element, and the <select> elements doesn't support an alt attribute.
