Heres a tip To have your PC Cursor or JAWS cursor speak the line it is on when you hit either the PC cursor or JAWS cursor.

do the following:

1. Hit Control+Shift+0 to launch the Script Manager with the default script file loaded into the editor.
2. Hit Control+L to pop up a list of the functions and scripts within this file.
3. Type the word "JAWS" to be placed on the list item starting with those letters, then arrow down to JAWS CURSOR and hit Enter to be placed within that script's text.
4. Arrow down to the line that reads SayFormattedMessage (OT_STATUS, cmsg10_L, cmsg10_S) ;"invisible Cursor" and hit the End key to get to the end of that line.
5. Hit Enter to create a blank line, then type the command SayLine() on that blank line.
6. Arrow down to the EndScript line and hit Home.
7. Type the command SayLine() and hit Enter.
8. Hit Control+S to save and compile the new changes.

Whenever you hit the Invisible cursor or JAWS cursor, you'll get the cursor announced, and the current line read, giving you a bearing on where that cursor is located on the screen.

To have the PC cursor do the same when it is invoked (which, by the way, makes a great Read Current Line keystroke), follow steps one and two above, then.
3. Type the word "PC" to be placed on the list item starting with those letters, then arrow down to PcCURSOR and hit Enter to be placed within that script's text.
4. Arrow down to the EndScript line and hit Home.
5. Type the command SayLine() and hit Enter.
6. Hit Control+S to save and compile the new changes.

Now, invoke those cursors and hear the difference.
