Yes I agree – I have sometimes had to navigate inaccessible dialogues this way.
The only thing is that after clicking on a control with the virtual mouse as you describe you then have to re-perform the OCR to locate the next inaccessible control as the screen would then have updated. This can make it all a tedious process but it is better to have this option than not.

Hi, Richard. What Glenn says is not true. Often, when I am on a webpage, and I am using JAWS OCR, (INSERT plus SPACE, followed by the letter C for Controls, often controls that are not accessible with JAWS normally are shown. Then, I use the Left Mouse key on the keyboard. If JAWS is in Desktop layout mode, the Left Mouse key is the slash key on the Keypad, not the numbers row below the function keys. If in Laptop keyboard layout, the Left Mouse key is Capslock plus the eight key below the Function keys. This way, I can often click a button or control on a webpage.

Okay, thank you.

When you do OCR with Jaws, it is just text, not active content like on a web page.
So you cannot, it's just a text copy.

Hope this isn’t a stupid question but wondering how I would click on a button when using Jaws OCR to read content in an application?
