Hi Krishnakant:

Determining if there are landmarks can be an expensive operation and can 
slow performance down.  So, it might be best to only do landmark 
operations when the user explicitly requests them.

But how does user know if there are area landmarks defined by the
designer of that page in the first place?

The first rule of Accessibility with Human Computer Interface Design is
to facilitate user's anticipation about the structure of the page.

For example Imagine if there is a large page and I want to know if there
are headings.  Now, i press h and i wait for a few secons or more
depending on the size of the page, just to hear "wrapping to top, no
more headings found ".

Had I known that the page has 0 headings, I won't try the command in the
first place which any ways gave orca a performance hit.

Same thing will apply for landmarks and I believe every one agrees that
on a big page, orca will take a performance hit and would slow down the
system and overall response because orca will scann the entire page for
the structural element which the user are trying to search.

happy hacking.
In any case, what I'm hearing is that you are joining the list of users 
who want default keybindings.  Do you think the 'm' key is reasonable 
for this?

Hi Krishnakant:

The content provider provides the landmarks as part of the markup.  What 
the Orca feature does is allow the users to navigate between them quickly.


hi will,
this works perfectly.
Just a quick suggestion, as soon as the user lands on a certain web
page, we must announce if there are landmarks set by the page designer
so that the user knows that the move to landmark (next and previous )
can be useful on this page.

Since orca is locating landmarks, i believe orca knows that there are
defined landmarks on the page.
I believe this is the way the scrip for mozila works?  or is it that the
first time user presses the move to next landmark key that orca finds if
there are any landmarks?

happy hacking.
