Seems to be more WebKit than VO.

Opera behaves differently. Opera doesn't make a difference between  
missing alt and empty alt. Both are removed from non-visual  

As far as I can tell, Opera doesn't behave consistently when I try to  
test linked images. I don't know why. Sometimes it allows a link image  
without alt to be focused, other times not.

It doesn't seem to read the file name in any case.
