Ed,
 
If you have any questions on any of the layered commands, do the following:
 
JAWS+Spacebar
Then press the Question Mark Key
This will give you a general listing of layered commands and what they do
 
Or, JAWS+Spacebar
then press one of the layered commands such as O, H, etc.
then press the question mark key.
This will give you specific options for that layered command.
