Re: JAWS cursor and the mouse

Hi Cy;

I don't use a laptop but, when I use my wife's I do plug a USB keyboard into 
it.  I just don't have the need for a laptop.  I've thought about about 
getting a laptop but, that thought was short lived!  LOL  LOL  Take care.
Mike

  Mike,

  Solve the problem the easy way.

  Either get a laptop with a full keyboard or hook up an USB wireless or 
direct connect keyboard and avoid the brain damage of learning the laptop 
keystrokes.

  You wold probably like the wireless keyboard anyway as you can get in your 
recliner and type away.

  Hi Alice;



  I'm sorry.  Hopefully someone will jump in and bail me out because I've 
never used a laptop & don't know any laptop keystrokes.  Take care.

  Mike

    Hi Bill;

    The keystroke to tether the Jaws cursor to the Pc cursor is,
    Control, Jaws /
    Insert key, + Jaws cursor / Minus key on the num pad.  Hope this
    helps.
    Take care.

      Hi, John. I don't believe that Cy was asking how to route the
    JAWS cursor
    to the PC Cursor. What Cy was asking is for the keystroke that
    will always
    tie the Mouse Cursor to the PC cursor. I don't know what that
    keystroke is,
    but I know it exists. What this does is allow sighted users to
    follow the
    cursor that the blind person is using with JAWS. Often, the
    sighted person
    has no idea where the blind person's cursor is focused when using
    JAWS.

      Thank you.

        To map the mouse to the cursor on a desktop config, press
    insert plus
    minus key, to map the mouse to pc, insert plus plus symbol. On
    laptops
    config, capslock + left bracket to map the mouse to pc. To map pc
    to mouse,
    press caps lock + apostrophy.

          Okay, I have forgotten how to get JAWS to track to the
    mouse or vice
    versa.

          When my wife is reading the screen and she wants to know
    where on
    Earth I am reading from it would be nice to track the mouse to
    the cursor.

          JAWS 11, W7 64 bit, MS Outlook 2007.
