Browsing A WWW Page.

The listener can browse a WWW page just like any other document. Hyperlinks are spoken in a different voice. The listener can interrupt speech at any time and activate the link that was most recently spoken. The listener can also move the application focus between the various links on a page; jumping to a link results in the anchor text being spoken along with an auditory cue indicating a large movement. Activating a link plays the auditory icon for opening an object, retrieves the document, and finally announces the title of the newly opened WWW document.
