The on-off key combo is insert Z as in zebra. I tried the toggle in Word 
and sure enough, it turned on quick keys. I really don't know the 
reasons for turning off the virtual cursor.

Subject: No virtual cursor on/off toggle in word with Jaws 7?


I'm going through the Jaws help topics about new features in Jaws 7, and
planning also to try the Daisy tutorials soon, as well.  But meantime, I 
was
just working on a document in Word, the first time I've done that since
installing version 7, and I noticed one thing that confused me at first 
and
which then I looked up in one of the reference sources.  I forget which,
because my head's spinning as I go from something in the Jaws 7 submenu
under Programs to the What's New section of the files in Help.  But what 
I
think I learned is that Insert V now toggles the new Word navigation
keystrokes on and off.  So far, so good.

but I'm accustomed to Insert V toggling on and off the Virtual 
cursor,and I
used to turn it off and find that I could move through a Word document 
with
my ordinary keyboard navigation keys (arrow keys, etc.) much more 
smoothly,
and that Jaws would stay focused where I meant to be more dependably, if 
I
turned the virtual cursor off.  I never did figure out what this was all
about, or what was supposed to be good or bad about having this set one 
way
or the other.  Maybe someone can tell me.

but my main question is, is the virtual cursor now on permanently in 
Word?
Or off?  It's hard to tell, right now.  And if it can still be turned on 
and
off, what are the keystrokes?  I looked under keystrokes for Word in one 
of
the above two places, and saw no mention of the virtual cursor at all, 
even
though of course I learned that Insert V now is for the navigation 
commands.

Thanks.
