pages for writing a paper for university

Club AppleVis Member

hello all,

I have to write a paper for university. How well does pages work with VoiceOver? I used Microsoft Office on Windows but it was office 2003. I figure I'd have to learn a new user interface anyway so pages I plan to use. Is there a guide for learning keyboard commands for pages? I am running the latest version of macos Catalina if that matters.
thanks,
Daniel

I used Pages to write papers that got me through middle school, high school, and college. In a podcast recorded in 2018, I covered some of the features I used most frequently.

The features I covered haven't changed much since then, with the exception of the VO F command being more reliable to find text. In my experience, it works best when trying to find text on the same page.

It served me well in college,

It served me well in college, and as someone who earned a bachelor's degree in history, I wrote a lot of papers. In fact, I still use it to write novels. It's very easy to change font size, spacing, etc.
