Seeking keyboard commands for bluetooth keyboard paired with an iDevice
Here's a link to Ricardo Walker's podcast on the Bear Motion mini Bluetooth keyboard:
I'll also give you a link to my Mac-access list post:

That post details more keyboard combinations than were outlined in Ricardo's podcast, though you'll get all the most used shortcuts in his podcast. Use the current address of the podcast, not the one in my post. All these files date from over 2 and a half years ago.
I just purchased a bluetooth keyboard. Its primary use is with a laptop running Windows, but I'd also like to use it with my phone, iPod, iPad and maybe Apple TV.
I read about key combinations with VO. What is that key combination on a standard keyboard? Or, is it an Apple only key?
What is the command key?
If you don't have a bt keyboard but have another keyboard that connects to iDevices, ALTOGETHER is COMMAND, WINDOWS is OPTION, etc.
As for the commands for the bt keyboard, pressing the COMMAND key will pop up some keyboard hints to look at. You can scroll through them using the up and down arrows.
Hi there. On a standard keyboard, option is alt and command is the Windows key. The only things different about these keys on a standard vs Apple keyboard is their location and printed label. The key information generated is identical, and runs both ways. So, ctrl-option is ctrl-alt. If you needed to use an Apple keyboard with Windows, this works the other way around as well. To press alt-f, for example, press option-f.
