Re: Drag and drop with Jaws

Hi, Michal. Here are the steps to perform Drag and Drop from the JAWS Help Topics

Drag and Drop (CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH)
This command is used to drag items from one location and drop them in another. Position the JAWS Cursor on the item you wish to move and press CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH. You can leave the JAWS Cursor active, or you can switch to the PC Cursor. JAWS will keep speaking as you navigate. Once you have positioned the JAWS or PC Cursor in the location to which you would like to move the item, press CTRL+INSERT+NUM PAD SLASH again, and the item will be moved to the position of the active cursor.

I have managed a few successful drag-and-drops with jaws but it is always a
pain to get right. If the keyboard offers the same capabilities I will
always choose that route, even if it means more work than a successful mouse
drag would have been.

I have experienced at least one instance where a program simply did
not offer the copy/paste via keyboard. Other than that the jaws'
drag-and-drop operation is so cumbersome that I see no advantage in
using it/.

Excellent question! I have always opted for the "copy and paste" method.

will be anxious to see what advantages there may be to the other.

Hi:
Can someone explain when you would use the "drag and drop" command
rather than simply copying an item and pasting it somewhere else?
Thanks.
