I have found Slack extremely difficult to use from the first attempt I ever made to use it.

I've achieved the best result (for me) to be use insert+z to switch from virtual cursor to PC cursor, then use F6 to navigate between the various panes.  This still results in sometimes unexpected results, depending on which panes are visible.

Well, I’m getting a bit confused myself. It seems that I do get different results with CTRL1 or 2. As I look at my version of Slack, Slack Version 4.11.2, I feel like Slack works differently.

I’m finding that the long list of keystrokes, (CTRL+/, have no consistency. I’m determined to learn Slack since it appears that now, everyone insists in using this very ugly product.

Are there Slack users? I’ve bee looking for some kind of Slack  accessibility list but what used to be available is no longer valid.

It's a little promising but still not like before. What does CTRL+ 1 do in JAWS?  I tried looking it up in keyboard help but it didn't say anything.
In Slack, CTRL + 1 is a shortcut for changing to a workspace.
