Fire Vox makes reading web pages easy. When the page loads, Fire Vox will announce the title of the page. At that point, you can begin to read the page.
To have Fire Vox read through the entire page automatically, use Auto Read. The default is Ctrl + Shift + A.
To have manual control over Fire Vox and have it read forward by one web page element, use Read Forward. The default is Ctrl + Shift + F.
To have Fire Vox read the previous web page element, use Read Previous. The default is Ctrl + Shift + D.
To have Fire Vox repeat the current web page element, use Repeat. The default is Ctrl + Shift + E.
To have Fire Vox read the text that you have selected, use Say Selected Text. The default is Ctrl + Shift + O.
To have Fire Vox stop speaking, use Stop Speaking. The default is Ctrl + Shift + C. Note that this command will also stop the Auto Read if Fire Vox is auto reading a web page. When you begin reading again, Fire Vox will resume at the element after the last element it read as long as you have not moved the cursor.
To bring up a list of all the headings categorized by level, use List of Headings. The default is Ctrl + Shift + H.
To bring up a list of all the elements on a page categorized by element, use List of Elements. The default is Ctrl + Shift + L. The headings category here will include all the headings regardless of level. For the form elements, the default is to identify the type of element and its status. If you do not wish to have this extra information, you can turn it off by going into Fire Vox Options and unchecking "Verbose Form Elements List."
Note: These lists are sorted by where they are on the web page by default. However, you can sort them alphabetically by going into Fire Vox Options and checking "Sort Lists Alphabetically."
