Hi Robbie,
yes, if you've got a large number of tracks, then using the context menu is 
It would be slightly better if the commands on the context menu had access keys.
A better solution, would be if the move up and move down commands appeared in 
the the list of keyboard commands on the keyboard page of preferences, and so 
you could assign keystrokes to these commands.
I've experimented with drag and drop and similar techniques and can't get 
anything to work.
With drag and drop, after you've pressed the first ctrl+insert+/, you can press 
numpad plus to switch back to pc cursor. This allows you to move down as many 
tracks as you want. However, if you move down too far, then when you press the 
second ctrl+insert+/, jaws complains that the original position is no longer 
visible, and it gives up (The original position has scrolled out of sight). And 
even when the original position is still visible, the results are unpredictable.
I also tried using insert+/ to hold the left mouse down, and ctrl+insert+numpad 
minus to lock the jaws and pc together, but with no great success.

ctrl-insert-/, but with the JAWS cursor I can’t get to all the tracks in the 
Thanks, Robbie
