Mouseless Browsing and Dragon: how to open links in new tabs

Opening links in a new tab with Dragon is a useful function, and can be done through Mouseless Browsing. You can do this with or without Vocola, but the Vocola command is a lot quicker. 🙂

With Vocola: Go into the mouseless browsing configuration and make sure the postfix key for opening links in a new tab is the plus sign (found under the Keys menu) and the modifier key is Ctrl (found under ID types). Then edit your Firefox voice commands by adding the following script, where 1..1000 corresponds to the link number you want to say:

Open 1..1000 new tab = $1{+}{Ctrl+Enter};

Without Vocola: Go into the mouseless browsing configuration and make sure the postfix key is the plus sign, and the modifier is Ctrl, as above. Then, say “press [number] plus-sign.” Then, say “press Control Enter.”

    Hi Hand To Mouth,

    Nice blog.

    I’d love to know what you think of Utter Command. Among other things it allows you click two mouseless browsing links using a single speech command.

    To get a quick sense of it
    – Go to http://www.redstartsystems.com, click on the video button, and choose a video to see
    – Then take a look at the graph on the bottom of the video page
    – Then click on “UC overview” at the bottom of that page to get an overview of the parts of Utter Command, make sure to look at UC List

    Cheers,
    Kim
