[macvoiceover] Re: Keystroke to announce the time, and selecting multiple lines of text on web pages.

as of right now there is not a way to get more then one line of text on a webpage. Whati do is do a command A + command C then put it in a textedit document and do it from there. To answer your first thing, not that i know of, however an applescript i would think could be created to tell you the time and a keystroke put to that script. What i do is vo+m+m then vo left once and this gives me the time,

hope this helps.

Hi Everyone,

I have been lurking for quite some time. After deliberating for nearly a year about whether or not to take the plunge to the Mac, I did so three weeks ago. I am really enjoying my beautiful MacBook so far. I love how everything just works. Reading textbooks for my Master's program is so much more enjoyable with VoiceOver. I have done pretty well separating Mac from my knowledge of Windows to this point.

I do have a couple of questions, however. First, is there a keystroke to announce the time on your computer? Second, how does one go about selecting multiple lines of text on a web page? I find that when I interact with something, I can only do so one line at a time. This is problematic when I am trying to select larger chunks of text. I believe I am following all the directions given in the various guides and manuals, but perhaps I am missing something. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Rebecca
