Highlighting the screen with jaws while testing

Hello everyone,

I use NVDA as my primary screen reader but I would like to be more
professional in knowing jaws to perform testing better.


How do you turn on the current element highlighting with jaws? It can be
useful when recording zoom screen sharing sessions while demonstrating the
accessibility issue.

In NVDA there is a checkbox:

Enable Highlighting

Do I need to do something extra to turn on this highlighting in Jaws?

Thank you!

Best regards,
