moderated Re: Opening a link in a new tab from the "List of Links" dialog

Also, it's not necessary to use the applications key to find the open
in new tab option. If you're focused on a link, you can press control
enter and it will open in a new tab. You may want to go into the
browser options and make sure that the browser will automatically
switch to that new tab instead of opening it up in the background.
Also, if links are being particularly tempermental, you can use shift
enter, and you'll open that link in a new browser window. Unless Jaws
codes the option in, it looks like the only way is the one described
already, which is to choose the move to link option, but at least you
can use control enter to speed yourself up.

No. I don't know how much more clear I can be about wanting to be able to
trigger this directly out of the JAWS "List of Links" dialog.

Of course there's a web browser running underneath in order to get said
dialog, but I have yet to find a way to activate a link directly from the
dialog that will force it to open in a separate tab of its own.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many
of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable
views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little
corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
