The basics of it is already present in NVDA (browse mode version); it is now a matter of extending that to other places, hopefully with an add-on first, followed by an offer to move it into NVDA itself once it proves popular.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Golden Cursor question
The search feature should, I think, be in NVDA, not in the Golden Cursor. This is important funcionality and is too important to depend on a user downloading an add-on to have it available.

In my efforts to find out if Golden Cursor is as good as the mouse with JAWS, I’d say not quite. Let me explain.
I just downloaded it, and there seems to be no way to search for a string of text within GC and have the mouse land on that text, so you can just click it, without routing, saving positions, etc.
Could this possibly be added? A Mouse Search in NVDA? I use Search in JAWS cursor all the time, and it moves the mouse to where I want it.
Or am I really stupid and missing it?
Someone suggested that GC does more than the JAWS cursor, but I don’t really see that.
All the best
