Hi all, 

I hope this message finds you well. I sometimes find it hard  to cite sources correctly in  my research papers. Citing cases is not difficult, but I struggle with news articles, research papers in journals, etc. Even though I have repeatedly gone through the nineteenth edition of the blue book, I haven't been able to fully internalize the myriad citation techniques. 
This problem is further exacerbated by the fact that JAWS acts in a very sluggish and unresponsive manner when you try to access or modify footnotes, so this makes the experience all the more unpleasant.
The upshot of this problem is that my research papers usually contain very few footnotes- nothing more than fifteen or twenty. As you can imagine, this greatly reduces the quality and veracity of the paper. 
I would love to know what strategies you guys employ for grappling with this issue.
