Question about whether NVDA has the equivalent of the JAWS graphics labeler to label unlabeled buttons in the HP Smart hub


Louise Pfau
 

Hi.  I did some cautious experimentation with the HP Smart hub that came with my mother's all-in-one scanner-printer before I purchase one of my own.  I want to be able to provide electronic copies of documents upon request, and I don't have a smartphone.  I noticed that NVDA didn't read the labels for several buttons, including "Scan".  Does NVDA have the JAWS graphics labeler equivalent to label such controls ?

Thanks,

Louise

Hi Louise


The closest I think might be the golden cursor which can be found at https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/goldenCursor.en.html

 .

I think that one does it like a hot spot?



there is another add on called Object Enhancer which can be gotten from my drop box at  https://www.dropbox.com/s/drmx32drvwuetwq/objEnhancer_2022.3_Gen.nvda-addon?dl=1

The second one will also work on 2022.2
