Re: cannot check boxes.

That may work.  Unfortunately, I find many web pages where the mouse doesn’t move to your position.  That is, the screen-reader’s virtual mouse.  I haven’t tried, but I wonder if a physical mouse can be used in such cases.  I haven’t run across a web site with anything so important to me to do that I’ve bought a mouse and experimented with it.  I may one of these days.
 
But those who know about how NVDA and probably other screen-readers work technically may, I hope, be able to explain why, so often, the move mouse command doesn’t work on web pages.

O yeah--& sometimes I have to do a move mouse to navigator object, &
then a left mouse click.
