Didn't know that. I normally use route jaws to pc cursor, but that's only to
get to certain parts of the screen jaws can't or won't read.

I think you should get your sighted friend and family to learn JAWS.  Just
kidding. One idea is to turn on the Teather JAWS to PC feature. This will
work when you are filling in form fields as the mouse pointer will move to
where you are typing. It will not follow the virtual PC Cursor, but it is a
start toward a solution.  I think the keystroke is: CTRL+JAWSCursor+NumPad

I'm looking forward to hearing other ideas on this.

Are you specifically referring to when you are browsing the web or reading
an e-mail that is in HTML format?

I've had a scenario come up on which I need advice.


If a sighted colleague wants to see where you're navigating on screen with
Jaws, is there a way to help him do that.  In various situations, either at
home or at work, when a colleague or family member wants to follow what I'm
doing, the cursor they see on screen isn't following my keystrokes.  Also,
if they try to use the mouse with Jaws turned on, the cursor they see
doesn't track well.  Is there a fix to this?
