Re: How to click on a hyperlink in a Word document

Russell,

I had a similar thought, but it doesn't work. However, just now, with focus on the hyperlink, I pressed the applications key, then arrowed down to "open hyperlink." Pressing enter here took me to the linked item. IN the future, applications key, then o, should do it.

Thanks to you and everyone else for your ideas. Michael's insert-F7 is the other approach that works.

Try placing the Jaws cursor on the link, holding down the CTRL key, and
doing a left mouse click. I'm not 100% sure, but I think sighted users may
also need to hold down the CTRL key and click to activate a link in a Word
document.

Thanks, Tom, but no luck here. It brings up a list, but when I select a link
(this document has 22) and tab to and press OK, nothing happens. Besides,
I'd like to be able to click on the link, as mouse users can, rather than
bring up a list and go through all those steps.

I believe you can use jawsKey F5 to bring up a list of form fields and the
link will be one of them. You can then just tab to the ok button and press
enter to activate.

Hi.

I can't figure out how to click on a hyperlink in Word 2010. I believe mouse
users combine a right-click with the control key. But every time I
experiment with this or that possible equivalent, all I do is add line
breaks.

Anyone know the answer?
