I am no longer using the JAWS virtual ribbons settings. However, after using them since their inception several versions ago, I am finding navigating the native ribbon environment a bit tricky. Are there any resources out there to explain or teach best way to navigate them or is it simply a trial & error thing?
All suggestion s appreciated
