Yes, that's correct.
Again, I'm really not sure this is needed. I think leaving the image role alone would create as good a user experience in this case.

Hi Cynthia,

Thanks for the detailed response; it helps me wrap my head around how UIA works in this case.

I have one question regarding case 4:

The accessible name computation is run on the <img> element to get "foo".  But, in this case, you do not assign an accessible name property to any accessible, since there is no accessible for the <img> element.  
Instead, the string "foo" is inserted into the page text pattern at the point where the img accessible would have been, had there been one.

Is that correct?
