To help our customers better navigate the Ribbon, we have created a list of keystrokes for Word 2010, Excel 2010, Outlook 2010, and PowerPoint 2010. The keystrokes are divided into two groups: Window-Eyes keystrokes and Microsoft keystrokes. A Window-Eyes keystroke is a hotkey that will only work when Window-Eyes is being used with the noted application. Microsoft keystrokes are hotkeys that will work at any time, even without Window-Eyes running. It is important to know the difference between Window-Eyes keystrokes and Microsoft keystrokes, so that customers know what keys are affected by Window-Eyes and what keys are affected by Microsoft. With this knowledge, customers can more easily learn new and different keystrokes when new versions of Window-Eyes or Microsoft applications are released.

You may download the following txt files that contain the list of hotkeys:

Word 2010

Excel 2010

Outlook 2010

PowerPoint 2010

You may also choose to copy and paste this information into Window-Eyes Application Specific Help. For example, if you wanted to put all of the Word 2010 keystrokes into the Window-Eyes Application Specific Help, you would do the following:

1. Open the Word 2010 txt file
2. Press CTRL-A to select all
3. Press CTRL-C to copy
4. Open Word 2010
5. Press CTRL-SHIFT-QUESTION MARK to open Window-Eyes Application Specific Help
6. TAB to the Help Applies To radio button, and make sure Application is selected by using the ARROW keys
7. TAB to the Application Information edit box
8. Press CTRL-V to paste the list of keystrokes
9. TAB to the Save button, and press ENTER

Now, whenever you open Word 2010 with Window-Eyes running, you will be able to press CTRL-SHIFT-QUESTION MARK to get a list of all Word 2010 keystrokes. Repeat the steps above for Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint using the txt files provided for those applications.
