It’s the same thing essentially.

 

All the best

Hi bill:

I tried the key combination ctrl+jaws+tab and it brought me to the label box that I saw whenst I pressed jaws+f2?

Is there some other combination for prompting?

You shouldn’t need to do that. There’s also another function in JAWS which might work in your situation.

 

Creating a Prompt

 

To create a prompt:

 

Move to the control for which the prompt is not properly spoken.

Press CTRL+INSERT+TAB.

A dialog box appears to walk you through the creation of the prompt. On the first page, enter the prompt for the control as you want JAWS to speak it,

and then select Next.

On the second page, enter the prompt for the control as you want JAWS to display it in Braille, and then select Next.

On the third page, specify a Tutor message to provide assistance with navigation or the use of this control. If you leave the Tutor message blank, the

default message is used. Select Finish to create your prompt.

Ok, do I have to restart jaws, or, reload the webpage for it to recognize the new labels?

It should label the button as a Personal Web setting, and should work with the Virtual cursor as well as JAWS cursor.

thanks Bill for the prompt response.
I went and did as you prescribed,
It took the label and I hit OK and then when I Erold back across the button it’s still sad and label zero button.
My question then is does this feature work when you are on the webpage with using the virtual cursor?
Or does it only work when you’re using the web page with the jars virtual cursor turn off?

Hi, Mike.

 

How to Make Custom Labels

 

This is appropriate for labeling buttons.

 

1. Put focus on the item you want to label.

2. Press jaws + F2.

3. Arrow to custom label. This will open a window that allows you to assign a label that makes sense.

Hey guys:

I seem to remember that there was a thread on here regarding labeling “unlabeled 0” buttons on webpages?

Is there a way to have jaws say something else whenst I figure out what the button does?
