That is interesting. I did not believe it was possible for screen readers to access text rendered as part of an image. At least in my mind, it is similar to the difference between a screen reader accessing a document saved in some kind of textual format, as opposed to a scanned/graphical PDF document. The latter is not possible without using OCR software to extract/convert the document into a textual format. Mind you, some newer versions of screen readers do come with built-in OCR capabilities, but I knew that was not involved in this case since OCR of a window/control has to be initiated manually and I have always been able to read the sample map with Jaws. Long before OCR capabilities were added to any screen reader. Also, I have tested the Jaws OCR feature on the pattern editor just out of curiosity, but it did not work.
