How to enable a screen reader application to read information contained in the Label of VB6 form


  • Scenario :

    I have a VB6 application and to make it useful for the visually impaired people I also installed JAWS on the system.

    This VB6 application contains a custom MsgBox where any information can be displayed inside a LABEL control. It also has an OK and CANCEL button


    The problem is that JAWS reads the "form name" and also the buttons that are on the form, but it fails to read the information displayed inside the LABEL

    I have tried searching a way where i can use MSAA route in VB6 to expose the LABEL control so that JAWS could fetch the information through IAccessible Interface.

    But i have not been successful in my quest. 

    Your help is appreciated in advance.
