Despite many jokes to the contrary, there _do_ exist computer interfaces
that people can just use without (significant?) training.  Even most
brain-dead first-time newbies can figure out by themselves that the "arrow
keys" are used to "move the cursor" when they are in a text editor.

Until a year ago, even this didn't work in info reader.

 P.S. What, don't know all those jokes?  Try "fortune -m intuitive"
