RE: Access Keys

I've just added the following to the top of the first page of our new site....

<a href="#content" title="Welcome to Career Matters. Many introduction
pages have flash introductions. You may find the search engine easier to
use. The search engine input box is Access Key 9. To skip to content on all
pages use Access Key 8. This page contains a flash movie for content. Use
the navigation or search engine to find a plain text page."
accesskey="8"><img src="/images/transparentgif.gif" alt="Skip to content"

Subsequent pages have no title just the alt that says "skip to content."

What do you think?

Will the title on the link even be read aloud by a screen reader/aural browser?
