Using keystroke commands in browser application

My company has a application that is brought up in Internet Explorer browser. I type in the application URL and it opens in the browser. This application is used to input data into fields. You use hand commands to choose or do certain things.

 

One of the commands to use to have the application perform an action is Alt A. If I am typing on my keyboard it does the reqired function in the application. However, if I do it using ME with the TEXT TYPE <ALT>a command I get the browser FAVORITES - Add to Favorites command.

 

Any ideas on how to get the Alt A command in the browser application to operate instead of the Browser Alt a command?

 

Thanks, John

Sometimes applications are temperamental about Alt sequences. Try:

Text Type: <ALTD>a<ALTU>

If that still doesn't work you might need to try something like this:

Text Type: <ALTD>
Delay 0.1 Seconds
Text Type: a
Delay 0.1 Seconds
Text Type: <ALTU>
Delay 0.1 Seconds

Very interesting. I've often wondered about this myself. Thanks for the suggestion, Kevin!
