Re: new user of OE

Steve,

I wasn't aware of this trick to stetget a look at the key assignment in the 
.jkm file, and it's interesting.  But for one thing, very little of what's 
in that list, or none of it, are the basic functional keystrokes for OE 
itself, the things I'd want to know first about using OE whether or not I 
was visually impaired enough to use a screen reader.  In other words, the 
keyboard equivalents for the normal functional commands that otherwise 
appear only in the program's menus.  Like Control R for reply, control F for 
forward, control n for opening a new outgoing message,control m for upload 
and download all email, and so forth.  In fact, the only such thing in that 
list is, in my case, the key combo for replying directly to  sender on a 
mailing list, which is a neat trick but not one of the basics of OE.  On top 
of this, some of the commands really mystify me, like the one for reading 
the spell check message when it finds a misspelled word.  What is all that, 
with the Jaws key plus the control key plus f7  or something?  What's the 
matter with just using F7 to fun the spell check, Insert c to read the 
misspelled word in context, and that's that?

I'm not saying this list is useless to know about; far from it.  It tells 
you how to skip around an open email by key presses instead of tabbing and 
shift tabbing up and down through all the fields, if you don't care to.  But 
it's not the same as a basic list of key commands for using OE, simply the 
OE commands themselves.  I think suggesting this list without explaining 
that may contribute to the problem I se a lot of people having on this list 
of not knowing what's the program itself and what's Jaws.  It's important to 
explain the distinction in order to give someone a clear idea of how things 
work.

Another way to get a list of OE keys:
go into OE, do an insert-8, then hit tab once, and there's your list of
keys.

Open OE, and then hit the jaws key plus h and you will get the keys for jaws
and OE

Sandy,
Look in the Help menu under Tips and tricks, there is a list of OE shortcut
keys.
