Re: When on the net.

This isn't true. Adding the JAWS key searches the entire webpage, not just the current screen. The practical difference between the two functions is that adding the JAWS key always works, whereas control-f alone doesn't always work. I stopped using control-f years ago.

The practical impact is that if you want to look for something on a webpage,
it's better to use Control plus F to find the content. There will usually be
more in that buffer than in the screen buffer accessed with JAWS KEY plus
Control plus F. If you use the screen find command, the content you are
looking for may not currently be on the screen, but it may be on the web
page itself.

Thanks, Bill. What's the practical impact of this difference? Keith

Hi, Keith. JAWS Key plus Control plus F finds content on your screen.
Control plus F finds content on the entire page stored in the buffer.

What's the difference between a virtual find with Control + F, and a JAWS
find with Control + JAWS key + F?

Thanks, Keith

All true. The corollary is that when you find you're using a website a
lot, such as Amazon or your local newspaper, try to remember which quick
navigation keys work well on it. For example, with Amazon, I find
searching for text with control-JAWS key-f gets me the fastest to the
content I want, such as "product details" or, for reviews, the word
"helpful." On another website, pressing 4 for heading level 4 takes me
through the content I need, while yet another website is best navigated
with 3 for heading level 3.

The most time is consumed with unfamiliar websites. Here, I start with 1
for heading level 1, then n. If those don't work, it's time to
experiment.

Carolyn,

There is no "skip to content" JAWS command that works universally across
web
pages. Fortunately, more and more web developers mark the start of the
main
content with either heading level 1 or ARIA regions. If that doesn't
work
on pages you need to access, try pressing the letter n, which skips past
blocks of links. This method, however, won't always work either. In
short,
quick navigation to the main content is very much page-specific.

Does anyone know what commands to use when attempting to go directly to
the
content of something on the web? I have experimented with everything that
I
can imagine with the help of JAWS Help. If anyone can tell me, thanks you
very much in advance.

GIFT (God is forever true),

Carolyn
