Summary of Issue: Documentation for Inspect Objects (part of the Windows SDK)
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Add what you are looking for with the Inspect Objects tool as it provides many technical features. This could be included as a note or as a separate link / new technique. 

Note: I have been using Inspect Objects for several years as an testing tool to determine accessible name (labels) in applications, flash and web pages. I would be happy to elaborate more if required.

Proposed Change:
recommended configuration:
1. Options Menu:
   a) Unset Watch Cursor (performance and allows to test tab order because only keyboard focus works afterwords)
   b) optional but recommended:  Show Highlight Rectangle (helps find missing focus rectangle by clearly showing focus separately)
   c) optional but recommended: Show information tooltip. This is useful for single screens as it shows the required information in a tooltip on top of your webpage. 
2. Settings Menu: 
   a) (optional) In the list of "Diplay in main windows" select Name, Value, Role and State only.
   b) required if using Information Tooltip: select Name, Value, Role and State only.

Usage: 
1) Tab through a web page or embedded object, 
2) check if there is a name property
3) if there is a name property, check if it matches the appropriate label.

If 2 and 3 are true this is a pass, all else fails.
