I just shift tab which takes you straight from the address bar to the bottom of the page content, you can then use usual nav commands to get you back to wherever you were before you jumped to the address bar. A better approach to the problem though is to virtualise the window, insert control w, then arrow around to find the address line, copy it to the clip board, press escape to close the virtualised window, and you’re back on the webpage still at the same point in the content. Maybe a scripting project for someone though to create a copy current page address to clipboard keystroke that works from anywhere on the page.

You might need to hit it a couple of times, but it should nto take you through the search and favorites bits at least.

Is there a shortcut key to get you back into the content area of a web page after you've been in the address bar? My real life example goes like this: So. I'm putting together some research on a subject and want to cut and paste the URL of a website I'm looking at, into a document I've got open. So I do an alt-D, copy it, paste it into my document, but then want to get back to the content area in the web page I've got open (the one whose URL I've just cut and pasted) Presently I find myself tabbing a lot, many times, sometimes triggering weird annoying things like search boxes, a favourites menu which I don't understand why it's there, and other things and sometimes it's a little difficult to tell you've tabbed back into the main part of a page after all this anyway. So. Is there a quicker way or a shortcut key? Any tips appreciated. For what it's worth, I'm using jaws 9 and 10 variously, on internet explorer 7. Thanks!
