    Unfortunately, it's still necessary to "flip" between screens even with
a screen reader. I don't  know if it works on Macs like it does on Windows
systems, but you can open pages in new windows. The proceedures for Windows
is either right clicking the link and selecting open in new window from the
menu that appears or instead of pressing enter, press shift+enter.
