Yes, they move the mouse (JAWS) cursor.

You can speak the current coordinates with Alt+Del

Not totally sure, but I think the key is in exactly what it says – this moves the mouse pointer, but doesn’t give feedback. I suppose this might be useful if you want to move the mouse pointer in small increments when JAWS is just saying “blank, blank, blank”, but it’s anyone’s guess how much the mouse pointer is actually working. I guess one just has to experiment with it.

Subject: in JAWS cursor, what do these keystrokes do?

I was going through a big document of JAWS commands and help tips I’ve created during my transition to JAWS. IN a list of laptop keyboard commands for using the various cursors, I found the following. I cannot figure out the difference between these and just using the arrow keys without the mentioned shift and alt keys. In fact, just using the arrows produces what I would expect, while these commands below seem to give either less info or less reliable info. Any experienced JAWS cursor users know if there is a distinction?

Mouse Down ALT+SHIFT+DOWN ARROW (when the JAWS Cursor is active)
Mouse Left ALT+SHIFT+LEFT ARROW (when the JAWS Cursor is active)
‘Mouse Right ALT+SHIFT+RIGHT ARROW (when the JAWS Cursor is active)
Mouse Up ALT+SHIFT+UP ARROW (when the JAWS Cursor is active)
