We are all very familiar with the experience of roaming around our phone
screens by touch. I just heard on FSCast that Jaws version 18 will provide
mouse echoing as you roam around by touch on a trackpad, as well as
improvements to the touch interface for tablets, and that prompted me to ask
you all about how it works on the Mac.
I have been getting used to the Mac for many months now but have never really
used the trackpad apart from a certain few gestures that are very convenient
(like turning the screen curtain on and off) and otherwise I just use the
keyboard for all navigation. However I’d like to be able to roam around the
trackpad as if it were a full representation of the contents of my monitor
(just like on the phone) and I was wondering if this is possible.
With the trackpad commander on it seems to behave a certain way and with it off
a different way (probably more like what I’m after) but I’m not sure if either
are exactly comparable to roaming around on the phone.
It may also be that the complex nature of windowed applications are causing
confusion and that possibly moving over something that was behind the front
window suddenly makes it come to the fore. I’m really not sure but would
appreciate people’s tips.
For info I have it set to mouse pointer moves VoiceOver cursor in VO settings –
the other settings don’t seem to be relevant.
