Re: Some mouse navigation questions
Also, a correction or addition needs to be made to an earlier message by another list member. In the desktop keyboard layout, the way you move through the different modes is to hold numpad insert and while doing so, press numpad 7 to move forward through the selections and numpad 1 to move back.
I don't know the laptop layout commands and those may be what were given. But if you are using the desktop layout, the default, layout, the numpad commands I gave are for switching review modes.

The equivalent to the JAWS cursor is screen review mode. There is also object navigation which, according to what I've heard and read is equivalent to the touch cursor in NVDA. To read about screen review, you can look at the user guide
You can look at the user guide for information about object navigation but you would probably be better off using a tutorial. I'll let list members discuss which tutorial they like that deals with the subject.
You can click the mouse once you move to something using object navigation or screen review mode. Use the command NVDA key slash, the mouse left click key in JAWS and NVDA. That moves the mouse to your current position in object navigation or screen review, whichever you are using. Then press slash again, which iss left click, as I said.
I can tell you where to look in the user manual but if you want me to, ask and I'll do so in another message. I'd have to look it up.
Also, if you don't know them, you need to know screen review keys such as numpad 8 read current line in review, numpad 7, move to and read previous line. and the rest.
Also, remember to always go back to object navigation after using screen review. Certain things won't work as they should if you don't.

so i guess what i'm trying to figure out here, ya know in jaws we have
the PC and jaws cursor. Does such an animal exist in NVDA? Obviously
there are some things we can access in jaws with the PC cursor, and
some things with the jaws cursor. Then we have the ability to route
from 1 to the other. Can we do the same thing in NVDA?
