Test Case Name: Checklist for win-webcontent-jaws test

A list of JAWS function keystrokes to test with Firefox


This file contains a checklist of all of the special JAWS keystrokes to be tested with Firefox.

These keystrokes were found in the JAWS documentation in the "JAWS Commands for HTML" document and JAWS Keystroke card for Internet Explorer.  The goal is to ensure that JAWS has equivalent function with Firefox as with Internet Explorer.

This checklist can be used in conjunction with the "win-webcontent-jaws" test case.  That test case contains instructions and web page elements to be used when verifying these keystrokes.
