moderated Jaws touch cursor #advisory


Van Lant, Robin
 

I have a touch screen on my personal laptop.  Frankly, I just don’t use it.  Nothing says you have to use it, even if it’s available.  Now, the only problem I have and some day I’ll get around to calling Microsoft accessibility on this, is that the touch keyboard will pop-up when I log in some times and I cannot figure a way to get rid of it other than to get to the tiny “x” button  that I can barely see.  The problem with just leaving it on screen is that it’s presence nullifies the Control key.  So, if I’m in Outlook and try to press Control Y to open the go to folder dialog, the control key won’t register. 

 

I’m not sure that there really is a way to use the touch screen with JAWS.  When I used Window Eyes, I could at least hit a button on the screen if I could see it or a sighted assistant was helping  me and wanted to use the touchscreen, but JAWS doesn’t seem to work that way and I havent’ learned the method for using gestures on the screen.  Now I just turn off JAWS if a sighted person is helping me with something and wants to use the touch gestures.

Actually, it is just the opposite.
The touch cursor is for those of us without a touch screen.
So you can use the touch screen.
For those without a touch screen, you activate the touch screen cursor with shift + PC cursor.
Double-tap the PC cursor to turn it off.
Then you can use the arrow keys and the number pad.

Hey! I have a question about the touch cursor of Jaws. I have a touch screen and I guess thats what the touch cursor is for. The problem is, I can not find a way to activate it. I already tried combinations like Shift+Insert+Caps lock+(+) or Shift+Caps lock+; but for some reason I can't get it to work. Is there a quick gesture to activate it? Do you guys have any experiences with Jaws on a touch screen?
Greetings!
