I don't recall, off the top of my head, what the label entry field is
called. I do recall how to get there, though.
While in diskdruid you tab until you are on the partition selection list.
It's the only place where the up and down arrows work--everything else on
that screen is something like add, delete, edit, etc. The one you want
follows help--and speakup may actually say help a second time, but it's
actually the list of partitions and you use down arrow to move to the
partition you mean to label. Then, tab to edit and press enter. At that
point you are in an edit field where you type in the label for that
partition. If you press the 5 key on the numeric keypad you'll hear that
there are some number of "lines" as in underlines which indicates the edit
Hope this helps.
