I am a mainframe user, connecting via the Attachmate Extra 3270 Emulator 
version 6.7 using Windows 2000 and JFW7.0.  Jaws and Extra 6.7 is not a 
marriage made in heaven but is usable.  
My PC has been upgraded to Windows XP Pro and Attachmate Extra X-treme version 
8 and I cannot get Jaws to track the cursor, and consequently, cannot acccess 
the application.
Is there anyone on the list who has Extra X-treme who has got Jaws working 
under Xp that can advise me of how to resolve this issue?  I have set up Extra 
version 8 the same way as I set up version 6.7, which was to set the cursor to 
a blinking underline shape.  In jaws terms, I did a Class reassignment of the 
Extra window to a Multi-line edit box.  Extra scripts are supplied with Jaws 
but these do not seem to have been updated since 1999.
