Reg inline images and high contrast mode.

I have been following the discussion on high contrast mode and background image sprites but I have a more basic question about inline images and HCM. For low-vision users without a screen reader on HCM, will they have difficulty seeing the inline image because it may not have sufficient contrast? Or are they expected to use a browser plugin to replace the inline image with its alt text?

I understand screen reader users will benefit because the alt text is read out? But, what about
LOw vision users without a screen reader?
