problem is that the screen reader, be it NVDA, Jaws or
anything else can only be used to navigate a web page using
shortcut keystrokes provided the web page in question is
marked up using the html elementse those keystrokes require
to move focus around the screen. The page you are referring
to has no heading mark-up which is why the h command will
not work The only available mark-up elements appear to be
links and paragraphs which is why only k an p commands
work. These may or may not be useful to you in finding
where each newsletter item starts, so you may have to do a
lot of line by line reading using the arrow keys to find the
bits you want.
of all in response to an earlier reference from Gene I
must state categorically that I am a complete novice as
have heard the term "there are more than one way to skin a
cat". Well I am present not able to skin any cat.
have read thru quite a bit of the short cut keys and they
do not react to the way I expect.
am not all interested in any k links. If at all possible
would it not be possible to give me the simplest method,
At this stage I am only interested in opening the headings
and would want the key strokes required to read such
articles continuously to the end. Is this possible?.

Re: [nvda] Web Page navigation
When the format of a given specific webpage is
known, and in this case it is known to be nothing more
than a list of links to articles, I don't think it's a
disservice to anyone who cannot see to state that fact
and to tell them that for this particular page using an
elements list is the way to go.
I'm not trying to teach general principles
here, but to help someone get through a very specific
webpage, and its child pages.
And, yes, that's my opinion when I have a
specific case under discussion, not a "how would one
best go about this in the general case of an unfamiliar
page." Even then I'd encourage someone to give the
elements list a look to get a quick snapshot regarding
what links, headers, or landmarks might or might not be
present. There's more than one way to skin a cat.
underestimate the difficulty of changing false
beliefs by facts.
