Programs to search on-screen text?


I am not a fan of the mouse, and as such I am constantly looking for ways to make OSX easy to use with only a keyboard.

For instance, in firefox, to click on a link on the screen, I press CMD-F, start typing the link in the search bar, and when it gets highlighted I press ESC then ENTER and voilą.

I would like to be able to do this with any item on my screen. I have found a program called Screensieve which allows you to search for text in most application windows, but unfortunately it does nothing beyond highlighting the text you searched for. Is there an application that would allow me to search for something, and once it is highlighted, select the object so that I can interact with it?

Thank you in advance!
