Hi Val,
Insert f6 gives you a list of headings on a page and insert f7 gives you a list 
of links.  These are  dialog boxes so tab around to find out what's there.

I take it you are using Jaws 5 or greater?

The most useful keys in internet explorer are,
N for the next block of text which is not a link.
U for the next unvisited link.
V for the next visited link.
F for the next form field.
B for the next button.

Shift can also be used with all the above keys to go to the previous instance.

Use the enter key when on a text box or list box to turn on forms mode so you 
can enter text normally.  Press the plus key on the num pad to turn it off.
If you have a look on your Jaws CD or on the freedom website (sorry can't 
remember the exact URL) you can access mp3 tutorial files about using Jaws.

You might want to keep and print this email for future reference.
Hope this helps.
It's not what Operating system you use, it's how productive you are with it.

  Subject: [jaws-uk] WHERE CAN I?

  I have been a JAWS user since the beginning but not a very venturous one as I 
have always been scared of hitting the wrong thing and blowing my machine up so 
I have never been curious about short cuts and other ways to get the best out 
of websites and emails.I do everything the long way round as originally I only 
had MS Word on my machine at work.  Gradually they have come into the 21st 
century and have now installed Office 2000 but, if anything goes wrong, the 
technician has to have a long extended sick leave and the rest of the IT 
Department have to holed meetings and draw lots as to who the poor soul is 
going to get the job.

  Seriously though, I know there must be quick keys, short cuts and much more 
out there now to make life easier when browsing the webb and filling in forms.  
I only picked up Tristan's Insert F5 by accident the other night and I have now 
found it wonderful.  There must be loads of tips like that out there which you 
clever people use every day without thinking.  Where can I find these so I can 
be more efficient?  I now have Office 2003 and would love to be able to use the 
split screens in the diary function as I am going to have to book appointments 
for meetings at work involving usually at least six people.  At present I take 
the long and lonely road and search individually but if there is a way to 
manage several diaries on the screen, I am sure someone will point me in the 
right directon.

  Lastly, has anyone got any tips for coping with Call Centre work.  How to 
stay calm, read the information on the screen and deal with the phone at the 
same time.
