I'm in total agreement with you here. What if a person is on an
unfamiliar page and he or she doesn't know what to look for? If I
know what I'm looking for, then I'll use the find command but that
doesn't always work. For instance, when I go to the Heart of the
Nation site to hear the Catholic Mass online, I use the elements
list with insert f-7 and hit S to find Sunday Mass. I don't know
why this person is so obsessed with the find command. Like the old
saying goes, there's more than one way to skin a cat. I won't say

Gene, I really have no idea why it obsesses you so how any given
individual user attempts to navigate a page.
Some people, and many of whom are likely to have been JAWS users,
simply like the elements dialog which is as close as you get to
the links dialog under JAWS.
Any page that has 4400-plus links is not going to be easily
navigated, period. Most web designers would never even begin to
think of putting that many links on a single page. This
particular page was not designed either for beauty or efficiency,
but is just a massive list of links arranged in very large chunks,
alphabetically, depending on what the title of the movie happens
You know how much I happen to like screen reader find and the use
of the various quick navigation options, but others simply don't.
There is no right or wrong way here, simply the one that one
prefers. And if you're aware that you're going to have to wait
for some seconds on pages with way, way, way more links than is
typical for NVDA to build the elements list, and make that choice,
there's nothing wrong with that choice.

I do not understand why
some seek to separate a person from their actions. The self
is composed of an individual’s thoughts, actions, and
expression, which are contained in and actuated by the
body. What you do and say is the clearest indicator of who
