Did you set, Graphics, in the Settings Center to
show, All, graphics? I've never tried to label a desktop graphic, so I
don't have a clue as to how that would work.

I’m familiar with these instructions. However, they work only
if Jaws sees the graphic. I did mention Jaws does not detect the graphic, but a
sighted person can click on it with a mouse.
Ok, I get this might be impossible. I need to place the
Jaws cursor on a button which is completely visual, Jaws doesn’t detect the
button at all. .
I need to make this happen for my job. I’m going to call
Vispero now and keep my fingers crossed!

labeling a graphic with Jaws
I'm using Jaws
2020 current and I have a desktop app that has graphics I need to label. Jaws
does not detect the graphic at all, but my sighted friend can click on it with
the mouse. Since I need to have the Jaws cursor on the graphic in order to label
it, is there a way to either have the Jaws cursor tether with the mouse pointer
or have the Jaws cursor move to where the mouse pointer is?
