VitalSource Bookshelf® eReader Keyboard & Screen Reader Commands 

Commands, often referred to as shortcuts, are helpful for users who cannot use a mouse or who require a screen reading program (e.g., JAWS for Windows and VoiceOver). Commands are considered a standard accessibility feature for browsers, operating systems, software, applications, and assistive technology.

This document provides links to command resources for commonly used operating systems, browsers (desktop and mobile), and screen reading programs.
