Re: Is there a version of JAWS that doesn't use mirror display drivers?
It can be useful, but it certainly does not let me access a lot of the information in some of the legacy applications I use, one example would be Sage 50 accounting. If, for example, I run a certain report like displaying a Trial Balance or all transactions for a certain account I can use the Jaws cursor to read that information on the screen, I can use Page Up, Page Down, Home, End, once I find a certain row I can navigate very quickly by word or letter etc. All of this is much more difficult with the touch cursor if it even worked in that application which it does not.
Also, with the touch cursor you can as far as I know at least only use the right and left arrows and move through the objects on the screen item by item, I can’t just arrow down, use home or end to go to the beginning or end of a line or Page Up or Page Down to go to the top or bottom of the screen etc.
Don’t get me wrong, the touch cursor has its uses, but they are not necessarily a replacement for what I used to be able to do with the Jaws cursor in Windows 7 and I also can’t wait for Freedom Scientific to get more Jaws cursor functionality back.

Try the touch cursor, even if you have a keyboard. I’d say it’s almost as good.
All the best
Looking forward to the day when the JAWS cursor works again.
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.
