JAWS Power Tip: Identifying The Address of a Link

Released: 2/18/2021

Share to Facebook

JAWS for Windows Tips.

Did you know that you could check the address of a link with JAWS. The reason for doing this is that emails and webpages may have links that may not be safe, otherwise known as phishing links.

➜ Once in an email or webpage press INSERT+F7

➜ Locate the link


➜ JAWS will announce the address of the link

In the latest JAWS 2021 release from February 2021 you don't need to use List Links INSERT+F7 to check the address.

➜ Press TAB or just arrow to a link

➜ Press INSERT+CTRL+F7 to have JAWS announce the address of the link

➜ Press it twice quickly to open the Virtual Viewer with the address

➜ Alternatively, once on the link you can press INSERT+F1 to open the Virtual Viewer to have JAWS announce the address of the link and allow you to use standard reading commands.

This feature also works in Fusion.

The Power of JAWS!
