moderated Re: Having Jaws read part of a screen in a specific color
Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
Switching to the Jaws cursor and hitting alt+delete gives me the same numbers no matter where I am.
Thanks for the idea, but that doesn’t seem to get me the info I need.
I’ll keep diging.

OK, thanks Jim, I have gotten a frame basically done but for one vital piece.
How do I get the Jaws cursor coordinates?
I probably should know this, but I don’t.
I really just need to know how far down the screen I am when I find the start with the jaws cursor. At least, I think that is what I need…
Hello, the frame viewer should work for this.
You designate a part of the screen using coordinates that you define using the Jaws cursor, and you may specify whether you wish to assign a hotkey to that part of the screen or whether you want that portion of the screen to read automatically when the screen changes.
Press JawsKey F2 and you can get to frame viewer from there.

I don’t think skim reading is the answer, but here is a more detailed explanation of what the program does.
I have an html document open, I hit a hotkey, f6 in this case, and it shows the resulting errors in a window toward the bottom of the screen.
That text is in Black on Honeydew.
Is there a way to set a hotkey to read only text in that color combo on the screen, that will still allow me to do the normal editing in the areas needing fixing?
Or, to set a window around that portion of the screen when I can get sighted help to do that?
I could have done this in my sleep with Window-eyes, but since I am committed to do this with Jaws, I could use some help.
Like Leo had said in a previous question, if someone knows and could explain it as if they were explaining it to a 7-year old, that would be appreciated.
It sounds like you’re trying to do something with skim reading.
