moderated Re: Reading the File properties dialog

Van Lant, Robin

James B, Routing the JAWS cursor to PC cursor did the trick. I think I'm still in the Window-Eyes mindset that once a dialog opens I can just hit numpad 7 and start down arrowing. I did not even think about needing to route the cursor in this instance, so thanks for pointing that out.

Tom, I do love the virtualization feature a lot, especially if I need to copy some of the information, since as an IP Address.

Virtualize the window with insert alt w and then you can read it with your regular reading keys.
Hope this helps,

The jaws cursor works for me in that dialog -- I am using windows 10 1903.

[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.
