NVDA and object tag

Hi community,

I would like to test the alternative content within an object tag in HTML with my NVDA screen reader.

But so far NVDA did not speak any content. It did not even mention the presence of an object tag (when tested in Firefox). It only speaks the heading. Am I doing something wrong? Here's my sample code:

<h1>Embedded objects and screen readers</h1>
<object data="path/to/image" type="image/jpg">
Alternative description goes here.

Thank you,
