    I am using IE 9 with jaws 12. To access the contact list, use ctl 3. To get the details of an email, use ctl f3. I am still looking for navigation keys to use with the contact list. For example, use esc to get to the list of folders. To open a folder, use tab. There are other short cut keys but I do not have them all figured out.

    Does anyone know of a keyboard shortcut that would be automatically sending email in Win Live Mail? Of course when it is half typed and not ready to be sent! It’s happened too many times to myself and another co-worker. I can’t figure it out!
