I am a visually impaired PhD student who has to use his laptop a lot for work. After experiencing some nasty pain in my right wrist that doesn't seem to go away easily, I thought I should improve the ergonomics of my working place, so I got myself a vertical mouse to use instead of the built-in trackpad. Now, when I'm reading stuff with zoom, my mouse device keeps drifting away to the right. As a read a text line by line, every time I pull the mouse back to the left to start a new line, the pointer moves properly but the mouse device itself ends up further to the right than it started at the previous line. Currently, I resort to lifting the mouse from the table so that it doesn't move the pointer and putting it back in place, but I have to do this over and over again. I don't know if I'm just to stupid to use a mouse or if this has something to do with Apples internal Zoom settings. I use a full screen zoom that follows the pointer and tries to keep it centred. This works just fine with the trackpad. With a different mouse from the office here I experienced the same problem, so I don't think that it's the mouses fault. Did anyone ever encounter something similar?
Technical Data: I'm using a 14 '' MacBook Pro with Apple M1 Chip from 2021 and MacOS Ventura (13.0).
PS: I cannot always use VoiceOver to read text, because it often includes a lot of mathematical formulae and VoiceOver still often times fails on them.
