In Windows 10 this is one area where you get the best results with Narrator.

Hi,
If you have Windows 10 and if you're talking about what I think you're talking about, then JAWS cursor won't work there, as the way to retrieve screen content is very different.
Cheers,
Joseph

I can read the screen line by line with the JAWS cursor, but that's about it. Otherwise it's tab all the way. As for why, that's a question for the ages and would be a mighty fine topic if we had one or two MS employees on-list.

I am finding that neither Window Eyes, NVDA or Jaws will read the screen for the windows update.
Here is what I do.
Hit the start button and in the edit box type windows update and hit enter.
The next screen has a button for checking for updates as well as a lot of other info. I can tab through some of the items but I can find no way to read the screen line by line with the arrow keys or mouse keys.
Why is this screen so difficult to read?
