Maybe the winactivate command might be a good direction to go?

I haven't had a whole lot of difficulty with it as of late - so may work for what you are wanting.

It won't read the toolbar text - as of yet I have not found a way to do that, but it will read for the title of the window that is open. (works if the item is minimized from view).

Hope this helps. i'm still pretty new so if someone else has more info on the matter - please feel free to chime in.
