Moderated Jaws 2022 does not support WPF AutomationProperties.HelpText




can someone confirm the behaviour that Jaws does not read the AutomationProperties.HelpText for any UI element, if the AutomationProperties.Name attribute is set?

I would consider this a bug, isn’t it?

have you tried using the advanced touch cursor mode, activate touch cursor, press jawsKey+a to turn on and off advanced mode, move to the object you want to see and press alt+enter for its properties. That may help.
