The flight warning computer uses only AOA data and flap/slat position in normal law. In alternate law, the speed becomes part of the threshold calculation along with AOA information.
Do you notice something ironic about this considering it appears one of the ways you find yourself in alternate law conditions is loss of airspeed indication?
