Learn basic keyboard shortcuts specific to Windows OS

Get familiar with the JAWS numPad keystrokes / commands

Also, Internet Explorer and Firefox have a lot of specific keystrokes
that are essential to learn for effective browsing (These can be
explored with keyboard help on)

Subject: Seeking JAWS Documentation to Help Sighted Instructor Learn




Our Seniors Program Manager, who is new to the Chicago Lighthouse and
sighted,  wants to be able to learn enough about JAWS so she can teach
at least the basics of how to use it to go on the internet, get e-mail,
and use Microsoft Word.  What documentation would people recommend she
study to learn JAWS, especially the keyboard commands?  I've shown her
how to use insert-1 to toggle on and off keyboard help, and how to use
insert-W in any program to get a list of keyboard shortcuts.  Any other
ideas or documentation suggestions?
