Media upload section unclear

In , the buttons/links in the media upload section were unclear to me until I clicked on them to see what they meant. I am not using Flash, by the way -- I have it installed on my computer, but blocked using the FlashBlock plugin in Firefox 2.0.
First, the link that says "Mutimedia" is actually apparently a link to upload multiple files. The word "multimedia" actually means having multiple types of media, like sound and visuals, not multiple files of a single media type. It would be clearer if it said "multiple files".
Second, the row of little pictures (with no alt tags, title, or textual explanation) is apparently a link to upload a single file. I figured out the musical notes, but the other icons were not clear to me, and they all led me to the same "Upload Images" screen.
Third, when you click on either the "multimedia" link or the row of little images, the header on the screen says it is only for uploading images. Where do you go to upload other types of files, such as sound? On my browser, the window is also too small, so I had to scroll down to see the bottom -- rather annoying on a pop-up window.
Some title/alt tags and clarification of the text on the screen would help greatly.
