Home works but yeah here we already are encountering a bug where spaces yet just just in fades the view and I’ll go away but I’m I’m actually expecting anyone to try these of course is absurd command 12345 and six are dedicated to the six tabs that you set I’m sure this is sure this is not causing any sorts of issues I’m sure there’s a great contact there this is making for some Ricardo they are very yeah that will take you through the configurable navigation to have a command, well open settings reliably oh my goodness gracious something that I almost no one is is going to you talk about I’m sure this might be the single place I’ll ever be documented

Yes what punch you to start yeah yeah I’m a start with it in command F will take you to explore and most the time it will even land your cursor up in the search field up here however if you arm it does not apply if you remove it from the customer as well and now this is where it could this could genuinely be useful right if I use command a fear because then it’s like oh wow I wouldn’t actually need it oh wow look at that OK bad is that that’s this is such so beautiful oh yeah and then of course I can at any time hater command via to open a Twitter link that’s when I afraid to ask imagine in my review for blue oh also let’s find a thread here I can always depend

This I don’t only care of that anywhere else be up let’s see and I think that’s because the whole bit yeah let’s see this is a great this is what’s enabled by I have a longer videos and that’s of course I hit that note instead of what I want to do after saying that oh yeah command M which apparently switched between light and dark mode some point does not work however command backs back/the one that’s fine more easterly other keyboard will open the accounts with your menu so that’s cool I think that you have that side of the whole bed that’s keyboard shortcut considerations on iPhone in the narrator app
