Re: rooting question

One example of using the jaws cursor that I use constantly is reading
stuff in console ('dos')  windows.  If I miss something during the
initial read (which is all too common) I use the jaws cursor to go
back and find what the output was.

I also have a few programs with multiple windows that don't honor the
tab key convention for cycling through selectable controls.  I use the
jaws cursor in that situation to make the switch.
