It is not expected the AT will implement the mapping of alt="" to
role=presentation, that happens or not in the browser, the AT looks at the
accessibility tree provided via the a11y API in the browser.

It is not dispated that the mapping of role=presentation to alt="" has NOT been
implemented in any browser yet, but it has been defined in HTML5.

so your results for JAWS are wholely expected.
