Easily Customize Narrator Cursor Settings


Customize Narrator Cursor Settings

In Windows 10, Narrator comes with the following options:

  • Show the Narrator cursor on the screen. The Narrator cursor is highlighted with a blue focus box.

  • Have the text insertion point follow the Narrator cursor when on Editable text. When this is turned on, Narrator will move the text insertion point when navigating by views such as characters and words.

  • Sync the Narrator cursor and system focus. When this is turned on, the Narrator cursor and the system cursor will be synchronized when possible.

  • Read and interact with the screen using the mouse. When this is turned on, Narrator reads what is under the mouse cursor. Use the numeric keypad to move the mouse.

  • Have the Narrator cursor follow the mouse. This option becomes visible when the previous option is enabled. If you enable it, the Narrator cursor will follow the mouse pointer.

  • Select the Narrator cursor movement mode. Two modes are available: normal and advanced. Normal mode allows Narrator to move between various items such as links, tables, and other elements. Advanced mode lets you use the four arrow keys to move the Narrator cursor through a programmatic representation of an application.

To Customize Narrator Cursor Settings on your Windows 10 PC, do the following:

  • Open Settings > Ease of Access.

  • Click Narrator on the left pane.

  • On the right pane, scroll down to the Use Narrator cursor section.

  • Check (enable) or Uncheck (disable) the desired options per requirement.

  • Exit Settings.
