Re: Mouse Navigation with NVDA - Do you use it? Do you like it?
Hi,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
One of the main reasons I use NVDA as a back up to JAWS is because of what you can do with the mouse pointer. I love being able to move my finger around the touch pad on my Laptop and hear NVDA read what the pointer is going over. I have mastered it so well, I can use the touch pad almost as well as a sighted person and click. Just think, I can hear what I am doing with the touch pad and do a normal click or right click and totally use the mouse in a program such as a security software program. I sure cannot do that with the JAWS cursor! Go NVDA! May become muy primary screen reader before long. It is so much snappier in programs as well. NVDA works very well in Google Docs and all of those Google programs. Have a great one.

Brian, while don't honestly use it too often, the one true advantage
NVDA has in this context is that it actually reads out what's under the
physical mouse cursor, as wel l as letting you manipulate it using
keystrokes, whereas jaws will only let you use the virtual jaws cursor,
so, yes, at times NVDA's mouse cursor implementation offers something
you can't work with any other way.
And, the audio tracking sound is an excellent way to keep track of
approximately where the cursor is as well, what with stereo panning, and
pitch differences, etc.
