Orientation commands: Hear summaries of open apps and windows; find out where the VoiceOver cursor, mouse pointer, and keyboard focus are located; read the contents of a window; and more.
Navigation commands: Move to items in a window, move to the desktop or menu bar, list all the elements in a window, and control cursor tracking.
Web commands: Move to web items (such as frames and web spots), hear webpage statistics, and change how you interact with tables.
