Oh yes, definitely do whatever you're most comfortable with; but, personally, I always like to know of alternatives so that I can take advantage of them if they would improve my experience.

Probably me doing the wrong thing again.
However, isn't it still the case that you should do what you are most comfortable with?.
Anyway I will try, try and try again.
Kind regards,
Dennis huckle.

Hi, Denis

Not sure what is wrong with your experience, then...I just loaded up the main BBC site in IE11 and Firefox and was told there were 98 headings and using H and Shift+H did what they were supposed to do.

Cheers

Hello Mike,
I went on to the bbc web site and, of course tried this but nothing happened.
That's why I use insert f7 to look at the links or, for example press insert f7 then press for example the letter s until I get to schedules.
Voice over is more difficult as you say, you probably need three hands and 15 fingers. That's why I gave my mac to my grand daughter and went thankfully back to windows.
Thanks anyway for this advice,
Its welcome.
Kind regards,
Dennis huckle.

Hi George and all,

In Windows I just hit the h key which takes me from header to header; if you wish to move backwards through the headers, just hit shift-H. Voiceover’s a little more difficult: Ctrl-option-command-h to move forward through the headers, add shift to that lot to move backwards. You begin to wish you had more fingers.

There are probably other smart ways, but I like to keep things simple :)

Hth,

Mike
