I get
many requests from people on how to navigate the Internet more quickly.
 
Here are a few hotkeys to get
you going
Hit your windows key+R for
your run menu and type in: www.google.com and ENTER and your Google page will
open (you can use your run menu to get wherever you need to go VERY quickly)
 
If you are using JAWS and you
do not hear him say edit: type a text, then hit the letter E until you hear
this, then hit enter for forms mode on, and type in a search word: Type:
yourtechvision and hit enter and all searches for that word will come up.
 
Now hit the letter H for
headings until you get to the link that says: Blind/Visually Impaired
Education: YourTechVision and hit enter to open (you will hit H several times
to get through your headings)
You will come to my blog with
that heading on it, so hit the letter H again until you jump to the heading of
YourTechVision and down arrow to listen to the content
 
When you are done, in
Internet Explorer you will hit CTRL+O and in Firefox you will hit CTRL+L to
jump to your URL address edit bar. This time you will type in: ask.com. This is
a site where you will type in a question you want to know the answer to. Type:
How many blind people are there in the world and ENTER
 
When the page opens hit the
letter H for headings until you jump to: How many blind people are there in the
world and then down arrow to listen to the answer
Hit SHIFT+H to go back up to
the link and hit ENTER to open the link. Hit the letter H again to jump to the
heading and down arrow to listen to the content
 
ALT+F4 to close the
page--More quick keys to come--practice and have fun
