Re: reposting question reading unlabeled graphics

Adrian Spratt



If I understand your query correctly, you want JAWS to read unlabeled graphics in email. Almost by definition, JAWS can’t read graphics that aren’t labeled.


What JAWS can do is enable you to assign labels when you figure out what a graphic represents. This works with browsers, and it probably also works with email. If you’re getting email from the same source with unlabeled graphics, you might try to figure out what they each stand for and assign your own label. Sometimes you can figure it out by clicking on a link and finding where it takes you. Sometimes context gives it away. Otherwise, you may need someone with vision to interpret for you, and then you can assign a label for when the graphic appears the next time.

No, that didn't work. Still just says the word link and the word graphic.

Hi, Vicki.

Try this. Press insert-V go enter the JAWS Options dialog.

2. Begin typing in the word "graphic" without the quotes. Typing graph should suffice.

3. Press down arrow. Look for the "graphics" option. Pressing the space key should toggle between all, none and labeled.

Does that help?

I posted this question awhile ago and didn't receive an answer so I thought I'd try again.

Is there a way to read unlabeled graphics in an e-mail with JAWS 2019? Seems like there was.
