The 'home' key has always worked well for me (outside of AT). I thought when I tested with VO the home key worked as well.

Subject: [WebAIM] Short cut keys

As a JAWS and NVDA user, I've always used control + home to get to the top of a page in Browsers. I also thought that keystroke also worked outside of Assistive Technology.

That assumption apparently is not true. So, I've been looking on different sites for consistent keystrokes to get to the top of the page. What am I missing?
