Re: alt text

Not sure if this is your problem or not, but when you use the right mouse button on the numpad, you have to actually make sure your mouse pointer is in the right place to activate that particular item. With JAWS, that’s why it’s usually best to route the JAWS cursor to the PC one before pressing that simulated right mouse button (or, really, you could just use the actual right mouse button at this point yourself).

I don’t exactly know how this works with the touch cursor though because I am rarely in a position where I have to use it.

Yes, this I do know, your terminology of this menu bar is not one I have heard used previously. So, nothing within the menu-bar for alt-text. I attempted the applications key, as well and again, no format picture option. Not until my son used the mouse and right clicked and the options using this venue surely not the same as all attempted via the keyboard.

Tell me how to get to this context menu.

Like one always does after an object is selected. Hit the menu/applications key, or Shift+F10, or right click (or emulated right click).  One of those always works.
