Re: looking for Jaws keystroke for WE command

You did not send a blank message, Steve. Hi was first, my message was next and then your reply to my message was below that. I doubt that Outlook freaked out at all. Some people just didn't read beyond the hi, grin.

Also, you did mention that the mouse cursor would be the active cursor and I simply misread that and thought the find feature had placed my PC cursor on the found word. I have played around with this feature and it does move the Jaws cursor. Thanks again.

Hi,

Wow, yes, it would be silly if I knew it happened. Outlook must have freaked out and sent a virtually blank message.

Apologies, remember, mistakes do happen.

All the best

Steve don't you think just putting hi in a email is kind of silly

Thank you. This is exactly what I am looking for. Wouldn't I need to route the Jaws cursor before clicking? My Jaws cursor does not always follow my PC cursor.

Carol,

Not if you are on a link, because the mouse tends to follow links in my experience, but it wouldn't hurt to route the cursor anyway.

All the best

Hi,

OK, here's a thought.

Find the word you want, as usual with JAWS find.

The mouse will actually be placed on that word, especially if it is a link.

Now to move rnight slightly, press Alt-Shift-Right arrow, this will move the physical mouse three pixels by default. I believe you can change this default in settings.

Then left click in the same way you did with WE.

All the best
Steve

Hi Steve,

I was the original poster for this topic. Yes, this would be for a web site.

With Window-Eyes, my brother could go to the site he needed and search for a specific word. He could then use the WE mouse keys and navigate up a certain number of pixels and then move slightly to the right, where he could then click on an upload button that was not seen by Window-Eyes. Here is an example:

The letter "a" in the word "name" is at position 200:200.
The button to upload is at position 205:185.
There is no text or graphic that is available to click on. To click
the button, he finds the a in name and then moves his mouse pointer up
from
200 to 185 by pressing the move up command three times and then moves to the right by pressing the move right command one time. He is then on the upload button and can use his mouse click key to press the button.

He never got to a place in Window-Eyes where he could set up a
placemarker, and he is only just getting started with Jaws. His PC is
a
Win10 desktop. How can one move by pixels in Jaws? Thank you.

Hi,

Place markers only work on the web, don't they?

The Snowman's Hotspot Clicker script would be better for this.

All the best

I come late to this discussion but...
When your Brother finally gets this particular area found with the mouse can he then use the place marker functions of JAWS to get there all the time?
If I understood the functions of this ability it can be website specific and he can just use the placemarker list to go directly to that point.
I just thought it was worth a suggestion.
Anyone with more experience with the placemarkers should absolutely jump in here and correct my understanding.
