    Is there a list of keyboard shortcuts for WMP11?

    Are there accelerator keys for getting to artist/songs/albums tree folders
    quickly? How about from the search box into results [not songs view]?

  2. When you went to the Help File provided in WMP11, and searched for
    "keyboard shortcuts", what happened next ?

    Cheers, nice to see the help is being fleshed out in b2.

    Any ideas on the last question?
    If I do a search for a word that brings up multiple hits like:
    2 artists
    19 albums
    195 songs

    I can't get down from the search box to those hot links via keyboard.

  4. Yes, you're right I'm afraid, I can't see a suitable but obvious
    accessibility feature like that - which is a failure of section 508 of
    the DDA act (sub part 1194.21)

    I'll try to raise this as a Bug/ deficiency, and hope somebody
    implements these shortcuts in the final player. My tests using the
    Vista speech recognition facility on WMP were interesting but very
    limited and frustrating.

    In a nutshell, the Vista voice recognition (after training) allows you
    to say "Show Numbers" to an application.

    Items in the list are then overlaid by a part-transparent numbered
    grid, from which you can choose a particular track or album by
    speaking the number of the item.

    However that's less than ideal for users with limited visual acuity,
    so proper adaptive tab order would be the most appropriate fix.
