Re: Outlook Express key stroke

Hi Allan,
I'm a longtime Jaws user. I often use Alt D to go to the address bar in IE. 
Sometimes I use F4. And sometimes, when my only purpose in going there is to 
type in a new URL, I use the Windows-style Open command, control O. In none 
of these cases do I have any problem or any conflict. And I can't seem to 
think of what sort of Jaws-specific keystroke Alt D is. Can you explain? 
thank you.

hi,
i see this in different point of view.

i totally not suggest ctrl+d for the following reason

ctrl+d is a jaws script keystroke where f6 is internet explorer or windows 
original keystroke.

ask yourself, if you too use to jaws keystroke, how if one day you have to 
use a computer without jaws in it? for example, if that
system loaded with NVDA, you are not able to use ctrl+d.

Hello Alan.



I would not suggest "F6" for the following reason.  If you do it your way 
depending on where you are in Internet Explorer it may
take several presses of the keystroke to get to the address bar.  However if 
you press "alternate +D" you are likely to get to the
address bar 100% of the time as long as you are focused anywhere in Internet 
Explorer.



I hope this helps.

but, why not just press f6 on IE for the address bar? f6 also can be use at 
windows explorer, provided you have address bar turn on
in tools/options.

Alt D puts focus in the address bar. When you move there, the web address is 
highlighted so you can clear by hitting delete or just
begin typing what you want. For example you could type 
www.freedomscientific.com, hit enter and you will go to that site. Alt D 
then
control C is the quickest way to copy a web address.

    Do you mean IE instead of OE?  OE is not a website.  Judith

      Hi,

      In OE I press alt+d to get address of web site that I am currently on.

      Is there a key stroke to clear web site address?
