You can compose and send messages using Google keyboard shortcuts. One way to do this is with the JAWS Virtual PC cursor toggled off.

If it is on, press INSERT+Z to turn it off.

To compose a message:

1. Press C to activate the compose command.

2. Focus is placed in the To field.

3. Type an email address, then press TAB to move to the Subject field.

4. Type a subject and press TAB to navigate to the Message field.

5. Type your message.

6. Press TAB to navigate to the Send button, the More Send Options menu and the Attach Files button.

7. Activate any of these buttons by pressing the SPACEBAR.

8. If you do not need these options, press CTRL+ENTER from within the Message field to send the message. (Note: Pressing this keyboard shortcut when focus is on the Send button will not perform the command.)

9. Press CTRL+SHIFT+C to add CC recipients, and CTRL+SHIFT+B to add BCC recipients.
