JAWS + Chrome ignores figures if image has empty alt / lacks alt #161
With Chrome + JAWS 2019 w/default settings:
The figure grouping would have been announced with the figcaption as the accessible name. The image would have been announced as earth.jpg, or ignored, but the caption would have been discoverable.
JAWS + Chrome completely ignore the figure and its caption. Virtual cursor cannot focus/announce the figcaption's content.
Test 2 of these figure/figcaption examples demonstrates this behavior with JAWS default settings.
