Atk.Image should be implemented by Atk.Object subtypes on behalf of components which display image/pixmap information onscreen, and which provide information (other than just widget borders, etc.) via that image content. For instance, icons, buttons with icons, toolbar elements, and image viewing panes typically should implement AtkImage.
Atk.Image primarily provides two types of information: coordinate information (useful for screen review mode of screenreaders, and for use by onscreen magnifiers), and descriptive information. The descriptive information is provided for alternative, text-only presentation of the most significant information present in the image.
