Try F6.  You might need to hit it a couple of times, but it should nto take
you through the search and favorites bits at least.

Subject: [access-uk] Getting out of the address bar 

Hi all. 

Is there a shortcut key to get you back into the content area of a web page
after you've been in the address bar? 

My real life example goes like this: So. I'm putting together some research
on a subject and want to cut and paste the URL of a website I'm looking at,
into a document I've got open. So I do an alt-D, copy it, paste it into my
document, but then want to get back to the content area in the web page I've
got open (the one whose URL I've just cut and pasted) 

Presently I find myself tabbing a lot, many times, sometimes triggering
weird annoying things like search boxes, a favourites menu which I don't
understand why it's there, and other things and sometimes it's a little
difficult to tell you've tabbed back into the main part of a page after all
this anyway.

So. Is there a quicker way or a shortcut key? 

Any tips appreciated. 

For what it's worth, I'm using jaws 9 and 10 variously, on internet explorer
