Hi tom, I agree with you regarding the Jaws cursor. At least in XP I was able to find some things with it, but as Jaws has progressed, or regressed, as the case may be, there is less and less functionality. I’m not sure why I even try to use it any more, as I get the blankety-blanke blanks 98% of the time. This has forced me to try the touch cursor more often, though I’m underwhelmed with it so far. Guess I just need to spend more time with it.
Really liked your definition of the John’s curser. Very clever. Best, Norma

Going back even as far as Windows XP, I’ve seen many instances in which invoking the Jaws cursor and then using the arrow keys results in “blank, blank, blank” et cetera and I’ve never gotten a satisfactory answer regarding why that happens. I’ve tried tweaking the screen resolution and other settings, to no avail.
As for the John’s cursor, I’ve never actually encountered one of those but I would speculate that it must be some device that kicks into high gear when a guy hanging out in the red-light district gets busted and hauled in for soliciting.
