I'm trying to press a button in TeamSpeak using applescript, here is my code:

tell application "TeamSpeak 3 Client" to activate
tell application "System Events"
    tell process "TeamSpeak 3"
        click menu item "Connect" of menu "Connections" of menu bar 1
        delay 2
        click button "Connect"
    end tell
end tell

and here is an image of me hovering over the button in accessibility inspector

Accessibility Inspector inspecting a push button

All I want to be able to do is figure out how to push my button using the information given to me in Accessibility Inspector, but with my code I get the error "System Events got an error: Can’t get button "Connect" of process "TeamSpeak 3"." Here is a screenshot of the window the button is directly inside:

    There is UI Browser tool which allow to figure our the GUI hierarchy, so it's easier to track the buttons. See related SE post.

You also need to specify the parent objects.

activate application "TeamSpeak 3 Client"
tell application "System Events" to tell process "TeamSpeak 3"
    click menu item "Connect" of menu "Connections" of menu bar 1
    click button "Connect" of window 1 of window 1
end tell
