(a) When software is designed to run on a system that has a keyboard, product functions shall be executable from a keyboard where the function itself or the result of performing a function can be discerned textually.
Windows Internet Explorer 8 supports all standard keyboard features of the user interface.
Caret Browsing is a new accessibility feature that enables users to navigate a webpage with a moveable cursor on the screen by using the keyboard. Users can select and copy snippets of text as short as a single character by using only the keyboard. Other content types such as tables or images can also be selected and copied.
Pressing F7 turns Caret Browsing on or off. It can be enabled on a per-tab basis or for all tabs and windows. Moving the cursor within the text of a webpage is similar to moving the cursor within the text of a Microsoft Word document. Holding the SHIFT key down and pressing the arrow keys selects text.
