I've done some tests of the presentation of the Lightbox using 
WindowEyes and JAWS.  The purpose was to look for any differences made 
by adding a title attribute.

The first crack at listing the results are here:

I'm still thinking about what these results mean (e.g., why does JAWS 
speak what it does -- where is the information coming from?), whether 
adding a title has any advantage, or whether the title should be added 
to other elements, and also how to test things further; but the above 
should provide something to think about.
