Keyboard navigation

Hi list -

I've had an interesting idea proposed to me. With the many folks that are =
not able to use a mouse, yet have no visual issues, wouldn't it be a great =
help if they had some of the same quick key navigation abilities such as ju=
mping from headings, button, check boxes, radio buttons etc. This would ce=
rtainly save the users a lot of tabbing and arrowing. Just imagine how muc=
h easier it would be for a user to bring up a list of headings, buttons etc=
. =20

As more folks get older and or have permanent wrist injuries, I think this =
kind of keyboard navigation would be quite popular. It seems like a screen=
reader company like FS or GW-micro would have a whole new market to tap in=
to. Any thoughts?
