Hi, Donna. Pressing the Space Bar activates the item on which the Touch Cursor is focused.

When using the touch cursor, how can you activate the item that it is on? From: <> On Behalf Of David Goldfield

The best way to disable the touch cursor when you no longer need it is to press the PC Cursor key two times, which is the numpad plus key when using the desktop layout.

Hello Donna:


I find myself confused. Shift Enter is not the keystroke to turn on the JAWS Touch Cursor. If, however, you mean Shift plus Numpad Plus, that is the JAWS touch cursor. To turn it off, double tap the plus key on the number pad.


Best regards,


Curtis Chong

I am using JFW 2022 and windows 11.  Sometime when I put my computer on sleep mode, when I come back, I can’t get JFW to speak.  I turn on the touch cursor with shift enter.  I can find sign in with that cursor, but cannot succeed when trying to make it do anything and find it hard to get back out of the touch curson mode.  Anyone have suggestions as to how to make this work?


Thanks for any help.
