See if rooting the Jaws cursor to the PC will allow you to arrow through this one page at a time.


That can be done by typing:


  zero+the minus key on your number pad.


Type: the plus sign on the number pad to go back to your regular PC cursor.

Subject: Reading the File properties dialog


Hi all,

I need some coaching.  If I right click on a file to get the properties info, other than just having JAWS read the entire thing from top to bottom, how do I navigate this to read things like last modified date?  I’m thinking I have to use the JAWS cursor, but when I activate that and arrow up and down, it’s just saying blank.  I tried using Insert R to adjust the boundaries, but that is not making a difference.  Is not thief the correct approach and, if so, what other adjustment to the JAWS cursor should I be making?   It just doesn’t work like the old Window-Eyes mouse cursor, so I’m at a loss.  My only other idea is to use OCR to capture the text.
