Re: Speech recognition in IE8
Use the menu verbs instead.
.... ar huh! There is no command to pin them there!
If you are using a wide screen, you may like to keep your favorites lists
'pinned' to the side all the time.... so either have someone press the Pin
button for you or (I haven't tried it) there should be a numbered command to
press the Pin button once you have the Favorites list displayed.
You will still have plenty of screen space to display web pages.
