Well, Maybe. I know that in Jaws if you press insert+h for help while
in the Microsoft help viewer it tells you to select a topic and press
f6 to read the text. It appears that Window-Eyes 7.5 now has a similar
feature where you can press+shift+control+question and get some really
useful keyboard help on an application. I'm glad that screen readers
have this sortof built in help, because although Microsoft includes
them in the operating system they don't exactly advertise them. You
can read through manuals an books on Windows 7 and directions are
almost exclusively about pointing and clicking with little thought to
accessibility even though you and I know that there are hundreds of
built in keyboard shortcuts to do the same thing. However, this is a
general accessibility/tech support topic so we probably shouldn't go
