I know the one letter navigation keys, but I didn't think to put those

in the list of what I did to change my password. I don't fully trust
sites I'm not all that aquainted with so when I'm investigating I
first go down line by line with the arrow keys. Yes, that is
time-consuming, but I feel comfortable doing things that way until I
learn the site better.
Plus, there are a lot of "clickable" tags so I felt it safer to just
arrow down incase I missed something. I found what I needed right away
so I admit to not looking around and experimenting more. I also don't
know this person very well so I don't know their level of
understanding for commands and thought just a straight listing of what
I did, minus keystrokes, was okay.
I thought it was helping and I wasn't expecting a lecture about my
methods to quickly get something done on a website I'm not familiar
with and just stating exactly what I did. If you don't know what to
search for, some sites use login, sign in, log off or sign out, and
the time spent typing in possibilities to search for arrowing down
could've gotten to the same place. Normally login options for sites
are near the top so I didn't feel I needed to try and skip around with
one letter navigation.
Sorry if I sound defensive about this. I normally use many of the
keystrokes for one letter navigation in webpages and just on my
computer itself and your response just rubbed me the wrong way.

Why can't you simply issue the command f when at the top of the home page to

If you are looking for a link you have to follow that might sign in, you can

point is that a lot of blind Internet users waste an enormous amount of time
because they don't know or use these methods. I am not assuming my
suggestions are the best for what we are discussing on this specific page.
But they will save people a lot of time if generally practiced.

What you need to do is go near the top of the home page of yahoo.com
and then work your way down the mass of links/options until you get to
where it asks you to sign in.
It will first ask for your username, firstname.lastname@example.org, then hit next and
enter in your password.
Once you login, and start at the beginning of the page, you can hit H
for headings to get to the list of options you can edit, like profile,
mail, and stuff like that. I only messed around enough to change my
password and I did that a while ago so I can't really offer a step by
step guide on how to change your password. I don't use yahoo mail and
only have the account to use yahoo groups.

I use Thunderbird to read my e-mail.
Now Yahoo is warning about the need to change passwords.
How can I do it in the web site?
I navigated on the page for hours and did not find where to do it. The
Yahoo accessibility help is useless....
