It is possible to do both:

TeX4HT: To add alternate text for images:
(There may be other methods as well.)

Lwarp: A LaTeX package which can add alternate text for images and links,
adds an 'alt' key for \includegraphics, and SVG images of math include the
LaTeX source as alt text. Lwarp also has support for more than 500 LaTeX
packages, and almost a hundred also support MathJax.

LaTeXML: Also adds the LaTeX source as alt text to its MathML output, and
has some provision for alt text for images.

Each of these also supports MathJax for math output.
