    I discovered this recently too. You can manually add in the title. Click the "Edit image" button to get to the editing screen. http://codex.wordpress.org/Inserting_Images_into_Posts_and_Pages#Step_5_.E2.80.93_Inserting_the_image

    Since 3.5 it seems that WP is deprecating use of the Title attribute because of confusion or misuse between Title and Alt, especially as regards accessibility for non-sighted users, screen readers, or text-only displays. http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/18984

    Arne, perhaps jQuery Colorbox could use the Alt attribute instead of Title to display image titles?

    Hi,

    I can use the "alt" attribute of the <img> tag as a fallback for the <title> attribute.
    But if the value entered as alt text is actually rendered into the "alt" attribute of the <img> tag depends entirely on your theme.
    The default WordPress theme twentytwelve does this.

    Cheers,
    Arne
