HTML5 Canvas and Circle

I've just run into my first page using HTML5 Canvas and Circle. It's a map of the world with circles that denote locations. Here is the code that makes the circle:

<circle id="OpenLayers.Geometry.Point_35" cx="205.56362664081473" cy="312.2960498916458" r="20" fill="#66eeff" fill-opacity="1" stroke="#33ccff" stroke-opacity="1" stroke-width="1" stroke-linecap="round" stroke-linejoin="round" stroke-dasharray="none"/>

Does anyone have an idea how to add alternative text? Is there an ALT attribute?
