If it is only a few of these objects you are encountering, your alterative is to use object simulation. Where all other forms of recognition in Rapise derive the coordinates of an object from a hierarchical tree based on Accessibility, XPath, DOM, etc… using object simulation sets a static set of coordinates as the definition of the object.
Yes, Rapise will find the coordinates and click or type on them. There is a downside, attributes you may be interested in are unavailable. Not all though, you can still take images of the defined coordinate space and use those in comparison, but things like value and state will not be available. This does not mean that simulated objects are bad, it means that there is a tool that can get you out of a recognition jam.
There are several ways to learn and interact with objects in Rapise. You should hold simulation in your back pocket for that strange case where an object is completely unrecognizable and the alternative would be to rely solely on manual testing.
