Are you familiar with the JAWS help system? It is incredibly comprehensive.
Press insert-J to open the JAWS window.
Press f1 to access the help system.
You will be in a list of what are known as books and topics.
Think of a topic as a chapter within a book.
Pressing enter will toggle a book from being opened or closed. A
book must be opened in order to see the list of topics which are
contained within that book.
Alternatively, when you are pointing to a book pressing right arrow opens the book and pressing left arrow closes it.
When you choose a topic that you want to open press enter.
Once you press enter your focus will still be in the list of books and topics. Press the F6 key to move to the topic that you opened. Topics will contain headings and, in most cases, links, just as though you were reading a Web page. Standard reading commands can be used to read each topic.
When you want to return to the list of books and topics press the F6 key again.
