I mentioned Golden Cursor and gave a link to it :)
Re routing the mouse, I'm not 100% sure how Jaws works, but if it helps:
- To move the mouse to the centre of the current navigator object, press NVDA+numpad divide (or in laptop keyboard layout: NVDA+shift+n). This can be useful if the focus is on a control which really wants the mouse to click it and won't cooperate with anything else.
- To move the focus to the object currently under the mouse press NVDA+numpad multiply (or in laptop keyboard layout: NVDA+shift+m). This can be useful if you have moved the mouse somewhere and want to move NVDA's focus there.
The full list of mouse commands (clicking, holding buttons down, etc) is in the user guide: https://www.nvaccess.org/files/nvda/documentation/userGuide.html#NavigatingWithTheMouse
Re why "clickable" is needed, a lot of people would argue it isn't :) Essentially though, the main reason for it, is if you are doing something non-standard and have, for instance, defined some new type of control, which may not obviously present itself as something you can interact with. In practice, while it does get abused, it varies from site to site - on some, it is indispensable and on others, it's reprehensible :)
