moderated Re: JAWS Equivalent of NVDA Focus Highlight


 

Hi

I believe that setting refers to tracking your location in virtual PC cursor/virtual caret as opposed to showing you the controls you are interacting with. And for resident NVDA users/testers, touch cursor is sort of equivalent to object navigation/review cursor in NVDA, and what NVDA calls “visual highlight” originated from an add-on that was in existence for a number of years (can’t tell you details because it is not the scope of this forum).

Cheers,

Joseph

Thank you Joseph,

That got me immediately to the correct settings.

I have to say, one would be more efficient if one could just do these settings when you enable the cursor tracking in the virtual stuff.

Hi,

Visual tracking settings can be found under Settings Center (JAWS Key+number row 6)/Visual tracking, and because Settings Center will default to showing settings from current application it is best to switch to default settings from there and adjust global settings.

Cheers,

Joseph

That was already checked and where, might I ask, are the adjustments?  Preferably, exactly?

I am striking out here.

I found those yesterday under Utilities, Visual (something or other, I know there was a second word).
