Another very useful key here is the letter s for "next same element",
which means that, after you press b for Button or e for Edit if you
press s you will then be taken to the next button or edit area; and
likewise shift-s goes to the "previous same element".

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

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

  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.
