Regarding the similar feature in JAWS; it was just released last week with the JAWS 18.0.2945 update which users were notified if they have updates turned on.
You can find it in the settings center but they say it's on by default.
The hitch is that it does not work everywhere; not with Windows 7 and only with certain programs, like browsers and tools that use the virtual cursor. The latest FS cast discusses it,but documentation hasn't caught up yet, so you won't find any references to it in help.
Call up Settings center and locate Visual tracking in the tree view. It can highlight the virtual cursor and the virtual ribbon. You can select the thickness, color and transparency of the highlight. For me only highlighting of virtual ribbons was actually on.
