The PC cursor is used to read text in a document or navigate through information on the screen. It follows the focus of the system cursor and cannot navigate outside that area. For example, when reading a document, the PC cursor cannot be used to navigate to the title bar or anywhere else outside the text of that document. The PC cursor is active upon running JAWS. If you switch to another cursor, you can activate the PC cursor by pressing NUM PAD PLUS, or on a laptop, CAPS LOCK+SEMICOLON.
Typically, the PC cursor is a blinking vertical line that indicates the insertion point in a document. It can also be represented by a highlight bar in a menu or focus rectangle in a dialog box.
