I am blind and using JAWS screen reader. When I choose a file from the project navigator by pressing shift+f10, choosing open with, and then choosing web editor, the focus goes to some undefined place. I am having a very difficult time figuring out how to get the caret into the source code for the html page. Sometimes, I can press ctrl+l, enter, and then tab and it gets to the first line. But, it is not consistent. Sometimes, I must first press ctrl+f5, go to web preview, then ctrl+f5, then ctrl+l, enter, then tab. If that fails, I close with ctrl+f4 and try again.
I found a key assignment for a command labeled as "source code" and assigned to ctrl+shift+f12. It is supposed to work in the web editor context. I can never get it to do anything. What is that command supposed to do? How can I get the caret into the source easily?
I used Eclipse heavily a few years ago for java dev. I loved working in Eclipse because it worked so well with the keyboard and a screen reader. Most of it still works. But, I am really struggling with some of the web platform features.
