1. Opening the web browser

The Touch comes with a powerful internet / web browser application called KeyWeb.

Note that the Touch also comes with the Google Chrome web browser application preinstalled. KeyWeb is more accessible and user friendly than Chrome, and it is always recommended that you use KeyWeb for web browsing on the Touch.

To use the KeyWeb internet browser, you will need to have a WiFi connection set up with an active internet connection.

Refer to “ Setting up the Touch with a wireless network ” for guidance on this.

To open KeyWeb, follow these steps:

From the Main Menu, type the letter I . You will be prompted “Internet, KeyWeb”. Now, press Enter .

The web browser will be launched. You can go straight to the address bar by using the Braille shortcut Enter with O . You will be prompted “Search or enter address edit box”.

Now, you can manually type in a webpage address to go to, using computer Braille, and then press Enter . The webpage will then be loaded and opened.

Refer to the various guides for working with the web browser for further information and guidance.

You can open and navigate most websites and webpages on the internet using the Touch. It is always recommended to use the KeyWeb web browser application to open webpages on the Touch.

There are a few ways of navigating to a webpage in KeyWeb:

  • Manually type in the specific web address of the webpage
  • Open the webpage from your Top Sites (bookmarks) list. This option will only work if you have previously visited the webpage and bookmarked it
  • Open the webpage from your History list. This option will only work if you have previously visited the webpage, and you have not deleted it from your internet history
  • Open the webpage from your Recent Tabs list. This option will only work if you have recently visited the webpage
  • Open the webpage from an external link, eg. From an email you have received, or a link in an application, etc.

Manually typing in the specific web address of the webpage

With KeyWeb open, use the Braille shortcut Enter with O to open the address bar. You will be prompted “Search or enter address edit box”.

Now, type in the web address that you want to go to, using computer Braille, and then press Enter .

Opening a webpage from your Top Sites list

Refer to “ Working with Bookmarks ” for guidance on opening a webpage from your Top Sites (bookmarks) list.

Opening a webpage from your History list

Refer to “ Working with KeyWeb History and Downloads” for guidance on opening a webpage from your history list.

Opening a webpage from your Recent Tabs list

Refer to “ Working with Internet Tabs” for guidance on opening a webpage from your Recent Tabs list.

Opening a webpage from an external link

If you are using a different application on your Touch, a webpage is shown as a link on the Braille display. In most cases, you can press a cursor routing button above any of the characters in the webpage link’s name to select it. Alternatively, move to the webpage link, and then press Enter .

You will be prompted to choose which application you want to use to open the webpage. Press Space with dot 4 or the next thumb key until you reach KeyWeb, and then press Enter .

You will then be placed in KeyWeb and the webpage will be loaded.

2. Navigating through webpages

The Touch provides a powerful and efficient experience for navigating and reading webpages through the KeyWeb web browser application.

You can use a variety of methods to navigate and read webpages. The various methods are described in this guide.

A webpage is effectively a type of document that also contains other special items, such as links, buttons and input fields, in addition to the standard text that a webpage can contain. These items are referred to as “elements”. An element is any single item on a webpage, such as a link, a button, an input field, or a section of text.

In addition to the content of the webpage itself, which can differ from page to page, there are also elements of the KeyWeb application which will be present on the screen when you are on any webpage. These include any browser tab(s) that you currently have open, as well as other elements such as the address bar, reload button, and so on.

General webpage navigation

The most basic form of navigation involves moving through the elements of a webpage one by one. You can move forward and backward by element. This webpage navigation is available for both TouchBraille and Explore by Touch modes.

Note that if you start at the top of the screen, moving forwards by element will first move you through the elements of the KeyWeb application first. Once you get past these, you will then be moving through the elements of the webpage content itself.

To move to the next element on the webpage, press and release the Next (far right) thumb key . Alternatively, press Space with dot 4 .

If you are using Explore by Touch mode, you can move to the next element by swiping right with one finger on the screen.

To move to the previous element on the webpage, press and release the Previous (far left) thumb key . Alternatively, press Space with dot 1 .

If you are using Explore by Touch mode, you can move to the previous element by swiping left with one finger on the screen.

To move to the first element on the webpage, press Space with dots 1, 2 and 3 .

To move to the last element on the webpage, press Space with dots 4, 5 and 6 .

First letter navigation

You can make use of first letter navigation whilst you are on a webpage. If you are looking for a specific link, button or another element, you can type the first letter of the element’s name and you will be moved to it (providing an element exists whose name starts with that letter).

For example, you open the BBC homepage, and you want to find the Sport link. You can type the letter S to move to the first element whose name begins with S, and you can repeatedly type S to move through all elements whose names start with the letter S.

Note : The use of first letter navigation will only work effectively when the items (elements) on a webpage have been named appropriately.

Using navigation levels

In addition to the general webpage navigation, and the powerful first letter navigation feature, you can also make use of navigation levels in KeyWeb. A navigation level is a specific way of navigating a webpage. The level defines how you move, and you can then perform actual navigation at the selected level.

The navigation level feature provides a simple and efficient method for navigating webpages. For example, you can set your navigation level to link, and you can then move through all the links on the page easily.

When you have a webpage open in KeyWeb, the available navigation levels are as follows:

  • Links
  • Headings
  • Form elements
  • Landmarks
  • List items

A link is a piece of text on the page that can also be “clicked” (selected), and in doing so you will be taken to a different webpage, or a different section of the current webpage.

Note that the exact behaviour of a particular link depends on how the webpage’s developer has defined the link.

A heading is effectively a title for a particular section on a webpage. For example, a Wikipedia page for rainforests might have several headings, each relating to a particular aspect of the topic. Heading navigation allows you to easily move between the sections to read the information you want.

A form element is defined as an item that you can interact with, such as a button, a checkbox or an input field (for example, the search field on the Google homepage).

A landmark is defined as a region of a webpage. It is often referred to as a frame, and is essentially an area or region of a webpage.

A list item is an item that appears as part of a list, for example in a drop down list from a menu.

You can use commands to move between the navigation levels. Once you have selected your desired navigation level, you can then navigate by the selected level.

To select your desired navigation level, press Space with T .

Once you have selected your desired navigation level:

To move forwards to the next element at your selected navigation level, press Space with dots 4 and 6 .

To move backwards to the previous element at your selected navigation level, press Space with dots 1 and 3 .

Moving through blocks of text on a webpage

When you are reading a webpage, you can quickly move through blocks of text on the webpage.

To move to the next block of text, press Enter with dots 5 and 6 .

To move to the previous block of text, press Enter with dots 2 and 3 .

KeySoft text navigation commands

As a webpage is effectively a document with extra items, you can make use of the general KeySoft text navigation and reading commands on webpages.

With speech turned on, these commands will both navigate your cursor and also read the content you move to in speech.

To read the next character, press Space with dot 6 .

To read the previous character, press Space with dot 3 .

To read the current character, press Space with dots 3 and 6 .

To read the next word, press Space with dot 5 .

To read the previous word, press Space with dot 2 .

To read the current word, press Space with dots 2 and 5 .

To read the next line, press Space with dot 4 .

To read the previous line, press Space with dot 1 .

To read the current line, press Space with dots 1 and 4 .

To read the next paragraph, press Space with dots 5 and 6 .

To read the previous paragraph, press Space with dots 2 and 3 .

To read the current paragraph, press Space with dots 2, 3, 5 and 6 .

To move your cursor to the end of the current line, press Enter with dots 4 and 6 .

Note : If speech is turned off, these commands will navigate you without reading in speech.

3. Finding text on a web page

You can search for text on a webpage. This is useful if you want to find a particular section on a webpage – you can search for a word which might appear within the section, for example.

Note that searching for text on the current webpage is not the same thing as performing an internet search. Searching for text on the current webpage will search for a word within the webpage you are on, whereas performing an internet search will search for a word across all websites and webpages on the internet. To perform an internet search, you will need to use an actual internet search engine for this, the most common one being Google.

To search for text on a webpage, follow these steps:

Use the Braille shortcut Space with F . You will be prompted “Find in page edit box”. Now, type in the word or sequence of words that you want to find, and then press Enter .

If the text you searched for is found, you will be placed on that part of the webpage containing the text that you searched for.

You can also search for the next or previous instance of the same word on the current webpage.

To search for the next instance of the same word, use the Braille shortcut Space with N .

To search for the previous instance of the same word, use the Braille shortcut Space with P .

Note : If you use the Braille shortcut Space with F and perform a search for a word, and you then open the search box again and then press the Back button to close the search box, the search box will be blank when you access it again using the Space with F command, and you can then type in a new word to search for. You can alternatively start typing, or press backspace when opening the search box to delete any previously entered text.

4. Using Reader Mode on a webpage

Reader Mode is a very useful feature which you can use to more effectively read the text content of a webpage. This is useful for a webpage that has lots of elements other than text, which can get in the way of effective reading. Reader Mode allows you to focus on the main text of the webpage.

Whilst you have a webpage open, you can launch Reader Mode by using the Braille shortcut Backspace with R . KeyWeb will then reformat the page and display it in the current tab.

Note that when you have opened Reader Mode, you can use all the standard KeyWeb navigation actions and commands.

To close Reader Mode for the current webpage, use the Braille shortcut Space with E , or press and release the Back button . You will be returned to the webpage you were reading, in standard view.

Note : Reader Mode does not always work effectively for all webpages. For some webpages, the use of Reader Mode does not make much difference compared to the standard presentation of the page.

5. Working with Bookmarks

You can bookmark your current webpage. This is useful if you will want to go back to the webpage at a later time. Setting a bookmark for the webpage saves you having to manually navigate to it later, either by typing the full webpage address into the address bar or by finding the webpage through Google.

Bookmarking your current webpage

To bookmark your current webpage, follow these steps:

With the webpage that you want to bookmark open, use the Braille shortcut Enter with M . You will be prompted “Bookmark added”.

Your current webpage is now added to your bookmark list.

To open your bookmarks list, follow these steps:

With KeyWeb open, use the Braille shortcut Enter with dots 2, 3 and 5 (“lower F”). You will be prompted “Bookmarks”. You will be placed in your list of bookmark(s), and you are positioned on the first bookmark in the list.

To move to the next bookmark in the list, press Space with dot 4 or the next thumb key .

To move to the previous bookmark in the list, press Space with dot 1 or the previous thumb key.

You can also use first letter navigation to move to a specific bookmark if desired.

To open a webpage from its’ bookmark, move to the desired bookmark (webpage) in the list, and then press Enter . The webpage will be loaded in KeyWeb.

Removing a webpage from your bookmarks

If you decide that you no longer want to have a webpage saved in your bookmarks, you can remove it from your bookmarks. To do this, follow these steps:

With KeyWeb open, use the Braille shortcut Enter with dots 2, 3 and 5 (“lower F”). You will be prompted “Bookmarks”, followed by the first bookmark in the list.

Press Space with dot 4 until you reach the webpage that you want to remove from your bookmarks. Now, press Enter to load the webpage.

The webpage will now be loaded in KeyWeb. Now, press Enter with M to remove the bookmark. You will be prompted “Bookmark removed”.

6. Navigating backward and forward through your browsing session

Going back a webpage

You can easily go back to your previous webpage when using the KeyWeb web browser. For example, you have gone to the Google homepage, and then gone straight to the BBC homepage.

You can quickly go back to the Google homepage, the webpage you were previously on, by using the Braille shortcut Space with E or by pressing the back button .

Note that you can use the Back command more than once, to keep moving back through your previous webpages.

Going forward a webpage

You can easily go forward a webpage when using the KeyWeb web browser. For example, you have gone to the Google homepage, and then gone straight to the BBC homepage.
