The keystrokes mentioned here apply to Jaws and NVDA but may well apply to other screen readers.

To jump to the search field when at the top of the catalogue page, press e.

When the search results page is loaded, you will here the word 'error' as part of the page title if the search has returned no results.

Otherwise, press 3 to jump quickly to the search results heading.

Thereafter, press g to jump to each successive title in the search results list.

To check out a book for borrowing, select the Borrow link for that title. This adds the title to your Bookshelf.

At any time, you can go to your bookshelf to start downloading the titles. Use the links list to find the Bookshelf link.

When on the bookshelf page, press 3 to jump to the Bookshelf heading below which there will be a list of your requested titles. Select the download link for titles you want to download and then follow the prompts.

Hope this helps to bypass the screen clutter.
