Re: Golden Cursor question

Well I only asked out of interest. Because I use quite a bit of custom software that doesn’t lend itself to keyboard interface at all, this would be a useful addition. The JAWS cursor, as I say, allows you to plunk the mouse down wherever you find a string of text.

You mean an extension of NVDA find command to operate sort of everywhere? Not that I know of at the moment, but might be something that can be useful for version 4.0 (to be developed by someone, not me, as I’m the current guardian of that add-on and intend to pass it onto someone once Python 3 transition takes place).

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.
