Re: Rethinking "Skip to Content"

Being a user of JAWS, I am really glad when there is a skip navigation link.
This is the only link I really care about. As far as the wording whether
"skip to" or "go to" it doesn't really matter. Although I do think "skip"
makes more sense to me. To me it means to jump over a certain content
within the page and get me to the part of the page that link was referring
to. In JAWS if a link is a link within the page, JAWS does speak out "This
Page Link". and if it is a link to a different page, all that JAWS says is
"Link". Now I am not sure whether this has anything to do with coding.
