3 questions:

1. So do AT in general treat @title and @alt as one and the same thing 
when it comes to that configuration? (To test whether it has any 
impact, one may use this page, which is what I used when writing the 
CP: http://malform.no/testing/html5/img-role-vs-alt/ )

2. What if such an image contains @aria-label?

3. Does it really hurt if they are unable to no disable announcement of 
images that are key content?
