Our solution was similar to the one I suggested in an earlier thread. We
tap the display circuits of prototype units to port mirrors of the embedded
UI to a virtual machine on a workstation and do screencaps from there.

If a working UI has not been built yet, we manually paste the UI graphic
elements onto a background in PhotoShop and type in the UI text strings
(which we write and/or edit for the design teams) to build a simulated UI
screen.

I said it was our biggest challenge. I didn't say we hadn't solved it. :)
