Didn't think about TTS, but I imagine they might read title tags as well? Anyway it's easy enough to modify the regex/replacement to keep the alt tag if desired.

Here is a example
Code:
 <h3 id="heading_id_2" title="Chapter 1">&nbsp;<img alt="Chapter 1" class="ch" src="../Images/the%20alton%20gift-2.jpg" /></h3>
that passes 'Flightcrew'

go it - thanks - you told me once before about using title tags to work around images as chapter headers I think, so if I find another example I'll try it your way.

maybe img alt works in some other ebook formats - otherwise I cannot think why anyone would include it in the 1st place ?

ah - google says tts is text to speech so maybe kindle could "read" out loud chapter 1, from that alt tag, as it has a built-in computerised-voice reader that I never use. so does the MS reader for Lit format.

I have a lit version & so try it in MSreader on my pc - , the "voice" says "graphic chapter 1" as it encounters the original code....

Using the ALT tag is good practice.
Having a meaningful phrase there is better practice.
I use a simple , but terse description "Map", "scene breaker", "Publisher Logo"

Feeling like a complete idiot here, but I cannot understand any of this. I create my ePubs using OpenOffice because I can use the Navigator to drag and drop the chapters to create clickable chapter links in the Table of Contents that works perfectly with my Sony eReaders. But when I added such an ePub to iBooks on my iPad, the chapters were not there. The 'Contents' on the book's iPad version strangely had the chapters all there by page number but none of the chapter titles. Enter Calibre. I tried converting my OpenOffice ePub to a Calibre ePub hoping the chapter auto detection would work and solve my problem. But instead, the Calibre ePub had no chapters at all, resulting in less functionality than I started with.
I have no idea how to discover what the "code" of my text is. Or how to figure out why Calibre does not recognize the chapters I painstakingly created. I have tried to understand this many times before. I have tried using Sigil, and it's even less understandable than Calibre. I really need help here.
Thanks

Below is the ePub created by Calibre, and below that is the original epub I created with Open Office.
