Released: 6/16/2022

Share to Facebook

JAWS for Windows with Microsoft Office Tips.

Documents use headings to create structure within a document. There is an easy way to create "Headings" in documents.

• Move to beginning of where you want the heading.

• Select the text using SHIFT + END for a line or use normal selection commands.

• Press ALT + CTRL + NUMBER where the number represents the heading level.

• Use 1 through 3 for heading levels.

Note: There are only keystrokes for heading level 1 through 3 even though headings go up to level 6.

Here is another method that does enable you to create heading levels one through six:

• Type the text that you want to be a specific heading level.

• Press one of the following commands.

ALT + SHIFT + RIGHT ARROW for next heading level.

ALT + SHIFT + LEFT ARROW for previous heading level.

For Example:

• Open Microsoft Word.

• Type "Title Slide".

• Press ALT + SHIFT + LEFT ARROW to set the text to Heading Level 1.

• Alternatively, press ALT + SHIFT +RIGHT ARROW to set the text to Heading Level 2.

Note: Headings are used to create a table of contents in documents.

#JAWSTip: Use INSERT+Z in JAWS to toggle on Quick Keys to navigate by heading using the letter "H".

The Power of JAWS!
