I don’t believe there is a turn off mouse function, but there is one which can be used to turn off the touchpad which usually sits in front of a laptop’s keyboard.

Are you using a laptop or desktop? I’ve found that just getting near the mouse on the laptop sometimes sends things to another window. Some day I’ll get the turn the mouse off key figured out.

This is a problem I’ve been having for some time.
A program I have running in the background – Ripping a CD, for example – interrupts JAWS speech in a foreground program – Chrome browsing FaceBook, for example. It affects JAWS like a screen refresh.
There must be something elementary I’m missing.
