It seems to me that with the touch cursor, some things are not read.
Compare what you get with Narrator and see if you find things Jaws didn’t.

Re: [jaws-users] JAWS2019 Build 1907.31 Update + What's New
I can get it to read the settings area with touch cursor most of the time. Is that not working by you?

Update + What's New
This is all working fine and the Start menu fix works for me.
Now, maybe by 2020 Jaws will again read in the Settings area of Windows 10. I have to use Narrator when I go to Settings in my Windows 10 64 bit Home.

speech or braille.

identifying the information.
