keyword search term edit box. You can enter a keyword or you can
tab over to the Search by Type drop down box and change the
search type to search by DB number, author, or title. You can also narrow your results by
using the Subject Filter to exclude or include various subjects. By default, all subjects
are included. Enter a key word in the box. For this example I am going
to use the word Winter. Press enter to initiate the search.>>NVDA: Winter. Loaded search BARD

containing this word will be presented in a list view. The focus will be on the
first book in the list. Use the arrow up and down keys
to browse the search results. From this screen you can add
titles to your wish list, download them, or access
