Hi Bill,

Thanks for the reminder, I use the Touch cursor, but it's not as much part of my muscle memory as is the Jaws and PC cursor. You are correct, however, it does read things a bit better and if, for example, you go to Windows Defender you only get a few options using tab, but with the touch cursor it reads the version of virus definitions, malware definitions etc.

I believe this is because it's a screen full of controls. Have you tried the touch cursor to navigate from control to control?

Subject: Windows update screen

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?
