Bob, please go back and check this, because already I notice an interesting
fact (based on your feedback).  

Compare Test 4 and Test 5 results:  In Test 4 "image with alt=quote, quote
and title text" you heard the title text, yet in Test 5 "image with no alt
text attribute but with title text" you heard nothing.  Can we then presume
that if we use Title but neglect ALT text, EMACSpeak "sees" neither, yet if
we provide ALT with a null value and then Title text EMACSpeak picks this
up? This is an interesting bit of factoid...

Test 6 results were interesting as well... Were you able to determine the
LONGDESC attribute?  Were you able to access the value (it exists)?
