Is there a way to enable this mode manually?

Hi, again. Another example of this is the video player Comcast
uses on their Xfinity Stream Web
app. When you begin playing a TV program or a movie. JAWS goes
into application mode when the player window opens as it's
actually more beneficial to interact with the player in this mode
than it is when using the virtual cursor. You can, of course, use
the virtual cursor if you want to but application mode gives you
some additional functionality. As an example, pressing up arrow or
down arrow raises or lowers the volume, respectively. Pressing
left arrow or right arrow moves backward or forward through the
video, when applicable. Pressing M mutes or unmutes the audio,
pressing the question mark key generates a list of shortcut keys,
etc. If you had the virtual cursor enabled much of this
functionality would not work unless you first press the
pass-through hotkey before pressing one of these dedicated keys.
In JAWS, the pass-through hotkey is insert-3, the 3 being on the
row of numbers and not on the numeric keypad.

My apologies, but what's "application mode?"
I've never heard of it until now.
>If I understand your question correctly,
I get out of applications mode by pressing the PC cursor
twice quickly.That is exactly right.
That is exactly correct. Pressing the PC cursor key twice
quickly reactivates either the PC cursor or the virtual
cursor. Most likely it will be the virtual cursor assuming
this is happening on a Web page.
Had an issue today with application
I was uploading a file, and when I
got done with it, I couldn't get out of application
Not to mention, that it didn't tell
me whether I was uploading a resume, a reference, or a
I used rout jaws to pc to arrow
around some, then used rooted pc to jaws to break out
Also, I found that hitting enter
twice, and or pulling up the links list and selecting,
move to link worked.
However, I was wondering if any of
you had a better way of working with that…
