Before going any further it is important that you know about the "Dolphin Cursor".
The Dolphin Cursor is a special kind of cursor created by the screen reader to enable you to explore a web page line by line, or word by word, or letter by letter using the keyboard. SuperNova and Dolphin ScreenReader uses a visual highlight to indicate the position of the Dolphin Cursor as you move through a web page, which you can turn on or off through the "Visual" menu of the SuperNova and Dolphin ScreenReader Control Panel.
