It is definitely a fact that in Windows 10 the Jaws cursor cannot read nearly as much information as in Windows 7. What the John’s cursor can do I don’t know because I haven’t figured out how to activate it 🤣

Dan is also correct in saying that Vispero is working on a major change regarding how Jaws gets information from Windows and that in theory this will restore some of the old Jaws cursor functionality.

In the meantime don’t forget that in Windows 10 the touch cursor can also be very useful, if you don’t know what it is or how to use it please activate Help > Jaws Help Topics and find the entry about Jaws cursors. The name implies that it is used with a touch screen and that is true, but it can be activated from the keyboard and be useful even if your computer doesn’t even have a touch screen capable display.

 I am not sure of the solution, but this is a typical John’s Kurtzer response. As windows has advanced and technology increased the John’s cursor has become less useful. I understand that Freedom Scientific is working on that and hopes to have major changes soon.

Dear listers, on Windows 10, I encounter a strange problem in Jaws
cursor mode with all web browsers. that while it reads properly
through arrow keys, it just says: "space", if I would like to move
word by word or character by character to move and click an element or
a word to read. So I am literally unable to grabb anything clickable
or any word to locate in Jaws cursor mode.
I have tested through various Jaws versions from April 2019 down to
2018, but it gives the same result.
I use a Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 P20W-C laptop with all the drivers
and firmwares up to date.

Any tip or help greatly appreciated.
