According to spec, alt text should be considered as part of aria-relevant="text". I guess this means we'll have to get the name for accessibles without text. I'm not sure what Mozilla fires in terms of events in this case. I guess we'll have to watch for name change events. Ugly.

I think the event is getting fired. If I add aria-atomic to the live region then the rest of the text in the live region gets read when I update the alt text, just not the alt text. Hopefully this isn't as difficult to fix as you fear!
