Hi :) I am mildly curious about how people work with screen-readers when they are completely dependant on them.
I can often work without a mouse by using some keyboard short-cuts and using tab to go through menus. To some extent i've memorised some of 'the' keyboard (thanks to Mavis Beacon and other touch-typing courses) so i could probably find the tab key without needing to see it but a lot of times i would be completely stuck I was hoping that being on this mailing list might reveal some tricks that a lot of people use but mostly it's been really technical stuff here. No-one here seems to need or ask questions about just workflow or for hints and tips, yet. Maybe that will change once LO is easier to set-up for accessibility, ie once java dependence is no longer an issue. I've been quite glad to see the highly technical answers too, of course but it's all just beyond me. Luckily i've not had to set-up a system for anyone needing it but i keep having little trial-runs at it. One day i should make a serious attempt and maybe then things will become a lot clearer.
