[vip_students] Re: Using The Jaws Cursor

Hi Tony,

To make the JAWS cursor follow the PC cursor, hit ctrl+insert+numpad [or 
numpad minus] - ctrl + route JAWS to PC - which is a toggle between "JAWS 
cursor will follow/will not follow the PC cursor".  If JAWS says, upon that 
key combo, "JAWS cursor will follow the PC cursor" you are 'good to go', so 
you should then get your result as you desired.  .

Now, before Paul gets to work, in the interim, here are a few prelim notes 
on mouse-clicks.

-- Singl-left-click is similar to making a selection; sometimes used to make 
checkmarks;
single right-click is much the same as accessing the _Context menu_ - 
whatever is defined as the 'context menu' at the point of reference - also 
shift+F10 on the keyboard.
Double left-click is much the same as hitting the ENTER key, or spacebar (to 
ok a dialogue.)

[Correspondences between the physical mouse and JAWS mouse emulation aare 
approximate, not always exact]

Hi Flor,  Thank you for sending that!

Now what I would like would be an easy to understand tutorial on the subject
say for example explaining certain terms such as, active cursor,  or,
invisible cursor,  along with say a simple explanation of the mouse keys
such as,  right click, left click, and double clicking!!

It is probably simple enough for some of us but for those new to
screenreaders and who may never have used the mouse before it may not
initially be all that simple!

I am still wondering that when I route Jaws to PC I am not where I was
before, say if I was checking the spelling of say a name in the, from,
field of an email, I can't do that but when I route Jaws to PC it loses
focus of where I was with that email, although I do finally find the email
and the the name in the, from, field and get the spelling that way!
eventually!!

I have for example Mcafee installed and to do a scan I have to route Jaws to
PC and then press the left mouse button and it then scans for me!

The advantages of for example routing jaws to PC would be good to learn!

There are a number of advantages  in changing focus at times , which would
be good to have explained more!

Looking forward to more on this subject, and Paul's mentioned tutorial too
when he gets the chance to so do!

Thanks again.

Perhaps now we should all await Paul's tutorial on the subject which should
be another cracker!!

Tony.
