Making the cursor follow as I type

Forum
macOS & Mac Apps

Hi,
I'm trying to change the cursor on my Mac to where it follows as I type in stead of having it where I go to the letter before the one I want and pressing delete. I also noticed sometimes voiceover won't read the last letter or punctuation I put and if theirs a new line it will jump over it and read the letter on the new line. Is their a fix for it?

Hi,
I tried to contact the accessibility through the chat feature on the site and when it asked for my serial num number I signed in and it said that my device wasn't supported because the warranty expired. Do they have a email address I could write to?

Hi,
No need to call apple accessibility for this. If I am understanding this right, go into VO utility, and under utility categories, go to verbosity. Under that, there's a text tab. Go there, and there's a popup button called something like when moving the cursor. It is set to speak text the cursor passes by default.

Hi Justin,
Thanks for the help. Do you know how I can fix the issue where voiceover will sometimes jump over a letter or a new line? this happens in pages and when I write a email.
Thanks

Go to voice over utility, then under the table, select verbocity. Press Voice over keys plus space, on "text tab". Then where it says, "Speak text the voice over cursor passes," you want to press space. From that, arrow down once, it will tell you voice over speaks to the right of the cursor. Click ok, or apply, forget which, bom done. Hope that helps.

I did that. I'm not sure if it fixed the issue where voiceover will jump past a letter or line when I press the rite arrow.
