some word combinations use liason and others do not?

In this same example in the audio, I am wondering why "... toutes ont disparu" runs the "t" into the "ont", instead of the last letter consonent "s" into the "ont".   I see this on and off but haven't found a lesson on the topic yet.  Merci!

On regardait les lucioles, et soudain toutes ont disparu.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Tout, tous, toute, toutes = Everything, all (of them), the whole"

HI Robin,

 A factual lesson on liaisons is top of my To-Do list....

Thank you so much.  I will look forward to that one. 

I was rereading the phrase in question and now to me it looks like maybe I'm hearing no liason (toutes and ont pronounced separately). 

Fortunately, for me you already have enough learning opportunities to keep me busy for hundreds and hundreds of hours but I look forward to seeing the new lesson! 

Merci.
