the reason why voiceover does what it does is that the default mapping has not
been implemented
try this and check with the mac accessibility inspector

<img src="x" role="presentation" title="poot">

The img gets removed from the accessibility tree. 

fangs does not emulate JAWS faithfully in many aspects.
try it WITH JAWS, you will get the same result when role=presentation is used
the element is removed form the accessibility tree no information about the img
is passed to a11y APIs

if you don't think this is the correct behaviour, file a bug against wai-aria
