Re: Demystify the route pointer to cursor for me

Hi Robin,
See if the tip below will help you make the transition to Jaws:
    From: dan Thompson
JAWS Quick Key 1.2.0

GW Micro has upgraded the JAWS Quick Key App to version 1.2:

  by GW Micro

This script provides a mode to explore the Window-Eyes equivalent of common JAWS keystrokes. Press the JAWS Quick Key hot key (Insert-P, by default) to enter the quick key mode. Once in the mode, press a common JAWS keystroke. If an equivalent Window-Eyes keystroke is found, it will be reported. You will stay in the Quick Key mode until you press escape, or until focus changes. If you find JAWS keystrokes that are not mapped correctly, or are missing when Window-Eyes equivalent hot keys do exist, please contact us at support@....



Take care.  Mike.  Dodgers, try again next year!

Subject: Demystify the route pointer to cursor for me

I’m transitioning to JAWS from Window Eyes.  I use the WE command to route mouse pointer to cursor with some frequency with the Insert numpad plus.  In JAWS, this key command is saying something about cursor routed to JAWS cursor and that does not seem to be what I want.  Also, this morning I hit the Shift Insert and numpad plus key combo and it said some something about the touch cursor, and my keyboard did not work right after than until I figured out Escaped get me out of whatever I did. 


Can someone help me understand how what I do in Window Eyes translates to JAWS? 


1)      What keys do I hit to put the mouse pointer where my typing cursor is? 

2)      What is the Insert numpad plus key doing when it says routed to JAWS cursor and how would I use that?

3)      What is happening when I hit Shift Insert  numpad plus and when do you use this?


Much appreciate.
