Hi tech gurus
I trust you are all well and safe where you are.
I am trying to cope.
1. May I bother you?
With NVDA, one can mark a block of text which one needs to delete.
To do that, you press nvda+shftf9 to mark the beginning of the block
and nvda+shftf10 to mark the end of the block.
How is that done with JAWS?
2. how does one join JAWS mailing list? I am asking this, because I
tried to join in but without success.
Your assistance in this regard is appreciated in advance.
