Yes, the JAWS cursor works fine for me in th is dialogue also and, indeed,
in most dialogues other than those from the Universal/modern apps. I know
other Windows 10 users have reported that the JAWS cursor does not even
function properly in file explorer to do things like this. I have not really
been able to determine what the factors are that influence whether it works
or not -- there must be some limiting factor at play or something connected
with how Windows displays text (I understand about the UWP apps not using
the off-screen model but that doesn't seem to be the case here) --

[1 <text/plain; us-ascii (quoted-printable)>] 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.
