JAWS 4.01, released in January of this year,  has this screen text option 
as the default.  Earlier versions default to the alt tag or title 
option.  In those versions even when you use the configuration manager to 
change the setting to screen text, there are still times when JAWS will not 
honor the setting, such as when the user presses the tab key in certain 
modes.  The short answer here is that JAWS 4.01 has corrected all the 
issues with this problem.
