Madison,
Jaws key + I will read the current line
Jaws key + k will read the word the arrow is on and
Jaws key + , will read the character that the arrow is on.

Hope that helps.
Zel

I don't have a number pad, how else can I check?

I usually just press the numpad + key to make sure if I'm uncertain. I do have this problem with outlook where occasionally when viwing a message in html (where the virtual buffer should automatically be invoked), I'm in "regular" PC cursor mode instead.

I have no idea, I never change my cursor.

You could try just copying the link into your browser's address bar/open dialogue.
When you see these links in your e-mails, are you sure your virtual cursor is on?

Subject: Jaws and links within emails

Hi all,
I've had an issue on and off that when I click on a link within an email I'm taken to the subject of the email and not the webpage that the link is for.
This is extremely annoying especially when it happens with verification emails, is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening in the future? I've tried changing the format that email messages are displayed in, but this hasn't made any difference, I know someone told me that when I'm on a link I can bring up the context menu and get something that says open hyperlink or something, but I've tried this and have not yet found such an option. I'm running the latest versions of Jaws, Edge, Office 365 and Windows 10. Look forward to any help anyone can provide me, everyone's help is always much appreciated!!!! Thanks Madison
