JAWS for Windows Tips.

Google provides keyboard commands specific to Gmail.

Though they are not screen reader dependent and can be used by everyone, they may be especially helpful to JAWS users when navigating with the JAWS Virtual PC Cursor off.

To use these commands, you will need to turn them on in Settings.

To do this:

1. If the JAWS Virtual PC Cursor is not already on, press INSERT+Z to toggle it on.

2. Press CTRL+HOME to navigate to the top of the page.

3. Press B until you locate the Settings button and press ENTER to activate it.

4. Press TAB to locate All Settings, and press ENTER to open this option.

5. Use the Find command to locate the keyboard shortcuts setting. Press CTRL+F to activate Find, type the word “keyboard” without the quotes, and press ENTER.

6. Focus will move to the words “Keyboard shortcuts.” Press DOWN ARROW to navigate to the “Keyboard Shortcuts On” radio button. 7. If it is unchecked, press the SPACEBAR to check it.

8. Press B until you locate the Save Changes button, then press ENTER to activate it. Your changes will take effect. Keyboard shortcuts will remain on unless you turn them off.

9. Press INSERT+Z to toggle the JAWS Virtual PC Cursor off when using the keyboard commands.

The Power of JAWS!
