Navigate, compose, and send email with keyboard shortcuts in Yahoo Mail

Yahoo Mail supports assistive technologies like screen readers and can be used without a mouse. Two such screen readers are NVDA, which supports email clients and web browsers such as Chrome and Firefox; and JAWS which supports web browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Edge.

While navigating the two versions of Yahoo Mail, full-featured and basic, it can be difficult to switch between versions.
