testing with JAWS 11.0.1467 on Windows 7 Home Premium and FF 3.6.9

<p role="img">This is a test.</p>

JAWS said: "This is a test" (NOTE: JAWS did not report the string as a graphic,
nor could i navigate to it using the "G" command to navigate by graphic, nor
did JAWS indicate that the element contained a landmark)

from previous tests, i don't think that JAWS currently recognizes role="img" as
a landmark, else it would have spoken the above example as "landmark graphic
This is a test." or "landmark image This is a test."
