Alt Text and Title Text for images

I understand that it is easy in Freeway to give images Alt Text. However, how do you give images a Title tag?

Am I correct in saying that a Title tag for an image is different to the Alt Text?

Am I correct in saying that screen readers read the image Title, not the Alt Text? And that it is the image Title (not the Alt Text) that it is seen when the mouse runs over the image?

Thanks

Am I right if I say that a Title tag is actually the heading (name) of a web page? Are we mixing up two things here? Do you mean a tool tip to images?

A title TAG is just that. A Title ATTRIBUTE is an optional part of
many different tags. According to the W3, a title attribute may be
added to “All elements but BASE,BASEFONT, HEAD, HTML, META,PARAM,
SCRIPT, TITLE”. So you could see one nearly anywhere. The only place I
ever use one deliberately is in a link.
