Hi.
        You do have to use the jaws cursor in some places. However, Gmail
provides keyboard shortcuts, which are somewhat helpful. They're listed
below. To turn them on, go to the page, log in (this should be =
accessible),
route your Jaws cursor to PC, go up to settings (it's on a line with a =
few
other things, you might just want to go to the top of the screen and use
jaws find to find settings), click it, and you'll find an accessible =
form
where you can turn keyboard settings on and off.
        Good luck.
        Aman

Has anyone tried this out?

click on it, and it will open the message, and the ads.

Does anyone have advice on using Gmail?

Thanks.
