Hi Srinivasu,

The web accessibility toolbar can be operated using the keyboard (alt+ctrl+
X) to open menus then use the arrow keys to navigate, you can also enable
visual rendering of the shortcut keys via the options menu.

Note, the version of the toolbar available from vision australia is
curently one version behind, for the latest version go to Web Accessibility
Toolbar - www.paciellogroup.com/resources/wat-ie-about.html
