Even though Window-Eyes is my main screen reader, I have always felt that
the W E keyboard interface is less intuitive than JFW.  These days, however,
there are so many key combinations used by both, they have become hard to
remember and both involve some keyboard gymnastics.  

In theory it is possible to make up your own keyboard scheme with both
screen readers, but in practical terms it doesn't seem to be all that
realistic most of the time.

I know this is subjective but I have heard that W.E.'s command keystrokes
make your fingers do many more difficult acrobatic moves than do JFW's. What
do you all think?  I'm so glad I brought up this topic--thank you guys for
your great info!  Beth
