Good evening,

You should be able to use F6 to navigate to the treeview control that contains the chapters and sections.

Subject: Navigating an Ebook

Hi All,

Has anyone found a way to navigate an electronic book, ebook, with Jaws?

In the past, I have saved the pdf ebook as a text file.

I am wondering, however, if there is a way to have Jaws use the bookmarks the way a sighted user would use them in the pdf file?

I would like to be able to click on a bookmark and have Jaws jump to that section in the ebook.

But that doesn't seem to work with Jaws.

Maybe I'm just not aware of a keystroke that makes this possible with Jaws?

I appreciate any help you can offer.
