[access-uk] Re: Google is more accessible from today

But on the old site you could just press z twice to jump to the div in
which the results are displayed so in terms of number of keystrokes to
get to the results it is actually no different.

Press 'h' instead.  From the top of the results page the first time you
press it you'll get to the sponsored links heading and when you press it
again you'll get to the first result.

I've noticed that pressing 'q' doesn't jump past the sponsored results
any more.  I don't think that's an improvement.

Hi all.

Have you noticed that Google is more accessible from today?

When it returns your search results, each result is a heading. So, with
jaws for instance, you can just whip thru them quickly using the letter
H or do insert-F6 to bring up the list of headings.

This gets my accessibility of the year award 2006 because it
significantly decreases my research time on search engines.

Give it a go. I'd be interested to hear your feedback and it's the kind
of thing I'd like to share with the BBC's accessibility gurus. A small
thing like this can really make a difference. Does it make a difference
to you?
