thanks Chip,
That's really a good way to access those things which can sometimes get lost in the clutter. Also, another way to do things that works occasionally, is to choose the mobile version of the web page.

Thanks, Chip; I must be missing one of these steps, so I'm going to save them.

Gratefully,

Darla

Hi Darla and all,

if you want to get the full text of an article that you know something
about, from the Democrat's web site, you can follow these steps:

* go to google; I prefer the version optimized for screen reader use at:
http://labs.google.com/accessible/

this version places each "hit" in the heading format, so you can use
your screen readers feature for moving between headings to easily move
from one "hit" to the next.  in window eyes, you just keep pressing the
letter "h" to go to the next heading.

* go to the editbox where you enter your search terms.  add the words
which should bring up the article you're after (in Darl's request, I
used "restaurant" and "close", but I did not enter the quote marks).

* before you submit this search, add a term which makes google search
only the Democrat's site; you add "site:tallahassee.com", but again
without the quote marks.  the operator I just added tells google to only
search the tallahassee.com web site.

now, when you press enter, you'll have a list of hits, each one a
heading; move between them until you find one which sounds like the
headline of the story you want, and press enter on it to go to it.

on the Democrat's page you go to, you can press the "h" command again to
move between headings until you find the one which is the title of the
story, and you can read some of it from that point to verify that it's
what you're looking for.

once you know it's what you want, use your browsers option which brings
up a list of links on the page; in window eyes it's insert plus tab.
find the link for "print", and choose it.

this will reformat the story without any advertising or extraneous text,
and then it will automatically start the printing process for your
browser.  you'll see a dialog open, and controls allowing you to choose
a printer, how many copies you want, etc.  don't print, just press the
escape key to close this dialog.

finally, you're now in a web page that's the story, and only the story,
that you want.  you can go to the top to read it all, or use control a
and control c to copy and paste it into an email.  you may have to trim
off the very bottom line of the page, which isn't part of the story.

hth,

Chip

Subject: [tabi] 4 Resturants to Close in Tallahassee

I still  haven't figured out the Democrat's website, but
several people I
encountered today said 4 restaurants are closing, including
Anthony's.  Any
light someone could shed on this?  I'd sure hate to go out to
dinner at a
nonexistent restaurant.
