RE: Linking back after D links


From: Paul Bohman

When using IBM Home Page Reader 3.0 in Windows 2000, I clicked on some
of the links, then used the ALT + back arrow to go to the previous page.
When it arrived at the previous page, it started to read the document
from where I clicked on the link. So it worked for me in the way that
you want it to.

Home Page Reader uses Microsoft Internet Explorer as the basis for its
browser. I have IE 6 installed.

...I was just wondering if any
other screen readers out there work properly as does IE or Netscape in
utilizing their back key. You can test from my example page
http://www.resiusa.org/scea/modules/prs_mod2.htm to see if you go back
the proper place by choosing the back key but keep in mind I have
setup the page to link back to the proper place if you choose my back
link. Just ignore that and let me know if it works any other way. I
appreciate any one who finds this problem often to give me their
and I will contact the necessary vendors to see if they can improve upon
this feature in their screen readers. This would save some of us a lot
