E	Excellent! Thanks, Aaron. So now it's down to JAWS... And maybe
it has some keystroke I haven't come across yet (please tell me,
someone!).

Do HPR and Window-Eyes indicate somehow that such additional information
is available? Or does the user just have to think, "Hay, I wonder if
this one has a title attribute"?

Thanks,
John

Just FYI, Window-Eyes does have an Element Properties hot key (INS-E by 
default) which provides various information, including any alternative 
text (i.e. ALT or TITLE attributes).
