[Athen] Word 2016 and JAWS/NVDA Image ALT text

In Word 2016, using JAWS 18 standard settings, JAWS will not read the ALT text that is in the Description box. If there is text in the description box it simply reads "Blank". It will read text in the Title box if it exists.

NVDA on the other hand, will read text in the Description box, and only read Title box if no Description exists.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a JAWS bug?
