Yeah, I know, Ted.

As an active ham radio operator, I can tell you that the arrl.org web site drives me nuts too.

I wish we could all figure out a way to tell them about the problems pertaining to easy accessibility in a way they could understand.

That find command is a good one. If you ever want to go stark raving nuts, visit www.arrl.org. It'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the organization in particular, or ham radio in general, but it'll wear you out trying to get to a particular link, even if you searched on that link.

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
