Touch cursor is the best around solution for this.

This is just an appreciative note to say that the touch cursor did indeed
provide access to the text that couldn't be read with the JAWS cursor.

This result is almost certain to confuse users, especially newcomers who
reasonably expect the JAWS cursor to be able to read the text in a window.

My informed guess is that User Interface Automation, most likely, is giving
JAWS access to the objects displayed by the application, but the techniques
used to review the screen with the JAWS cursor (an off-screen model or
whatever is used nowadays) don't work in this and certain other recent
applications. This difference is being passed on to the users.
