Picture Smart for Describing Images with JAWS and Fusion
Picture Smart allows you to choose a photo and submit it to be analyzed. A
description of the image is then displayed in the JAWS Results Viewer
Descriptions might include details such as the number of people in the
photo, recognizable landmarks, landscape details such as "outdoors with a
blue sky and green grass," if there are vehicles such as automobiles or
trains, and
more. If there is text in the picture, it will OCR the text and provide that
as well.
To use Picture Smart, press INSERT+SPACEBAR followed by P. Once the Picture
Smart layer is active, the following keystrokes are available:

back to us. These descriptions are then displayed in the Results Viewer. If
you attempt to use Picture Smart and this setting is off, a message displays
prompting you to turn it on.
Note: Picture Smart is currently only available while in the English
Language UI of JAWS and Fusion as the services that perform the image
analysis do
not currently support international languages for descriptions of images.
For users of localized versions of JAWS running in versions of Windows other
than English, you must switch the JAWS UI language to English to try out
this feature. We plan to make Picture Smart available in more languages in
future as these services continue to expand to include additional languages.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.
