Re: Golden Cursor question

I understand that.  But using the JAWS cursor if you don't know the very small movement commands, and most JAWS users don't, is equivalent to screen review in NVDA.  I wasn't talking about various more precise ways to move the mouse.  I was answering the question of how you move the mouse in NVDA, not discussing the limits of that movement.  And you can also move the mouse when in object navigation mode.  I have done so in the past to work with a program I couldn't gain proper access to using screen review.  In JAWS, the Touch Cursor would have had to be used for that program.  and, just as in JAWS, you can move by word or character when moving the mouse with the NVDA review commands.  As I said, these are equivalent to moving the JAWS cursor using the commands most JAWS users know about.

To move the mouse to the review position, use the command numpad insert numpad slash.  To left click the mouse, use numpad slash. To right click, use numpad Times, which I believe is also the asterisk.  It's immediately to the right of numpad slash.  
Gene, these are, at best, distant approximations of actually moving the mouse around, and I'm aware of all of the mouse "snap to" commands in both NVDA and JAWS.

What Golden Cursor does is entirely different, and actually allows the movement of the native mouse pointer around the screen to specific positions.  I don't even know how, exactly, I can describe the difference accurately, but the "Move Mouse to Current Navigator Object" and corresponding "Navigate to object under the mouse" aren't even necessarily moving the mouse pointer at all.  Actions by Golden Cursor literally do.
