In Outlook, when I hit insert Z for virtual cursor, I get a message that says “unavailable”.
Do you or any others know what this means?
When I try turning the virtual cursor on and off in Microsoft Word via insert Z, I get quick keys on or off.
In Excel, the virtual cursor can be turned either on or off normally.
Not quite sure what is going on here.

Hi, Tom. No. Virtual Cursor should be turned on in these programs anyway. Even if it weren't, you'd need to perform the same keystroke in these other programs to change anything with them.
Yes, that solved my problem.
Will that have any impacts for my other commonly-used apps such as Outlook, Microsoft Word, Excel, etc.?
Yes. Instead of pressing INSERT plus Z in the browser while the cursor is off, try pressing the same keystroke twice quickly. It should say Virtual cursor will be turned on for all applications.
Ever since I went into Jaws settings, and set Jaws to “Full content using on screen highlight” in both Firefox and Google Chrome, I now need to manually turn on my virtual cursor every time I open up a web site in either browser.
Is there a way I can avoid this extra step??
If not, I may set things back to the virtual cursor option.
