Re: Use of standard view in Gmail

I don't use Standard View with Gmail, so I haven't needed to turn on the shortcuts.

1. First turn off the Virtual Cursor with INSERT plus Z.
2. Press Question Mark (SHIFT plus /) to obtain a list of shortcuts.
3. TAB to Enable, and press ENTER.
4. Your shortcuts should now be enabled.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for your revert.
Well, that's precisely my concern. As sighted people don't quite like
the Basic HTML view.
Hence, was wondering of some basic shortcuts to navigate in Standard view.

Hi, Turab. If you change to Basic View, it will change the view for
who uses the same login and password, because you are changing the
at the Internet Web Page level, not at the level of an email client on
own machine.

Hi Shankar,
Thanks a lot for your suggestions.
Will follow the steps. I have the following additional concerns.
1. If I change the view in my system, will the view change for others as
2. Are the features in Basic HTML view lesser as compared to Standard

Hi, if your office uses gmail for the Communication, do the following.
1. login with the gmail using your credentials.
2. once you login, the screen reader may announce loading gmail….
3. press letter b key.
4. the screen reader should announce load basic html button, now just
activate the button by pressing space or enter key.
5. now you can view your gmail with basic html.

if you want to set this as default view, go to the links list and
press letter s until your screen reader says set as default view, and
activate the link.
