the mute key is left of center. you know, the big button in the center is the volume up/down button. to the left of that is mute. left of mute is play/pause, and left of that is multimedia.

Robert,

I don't use a braille display, but even easier, simply press the mute button on the logitech to get speech back (its a toggle switch)

I do Phil:

I had the same accident, but what I would suggest you do, as I myself have done, When you get your audio back, customize JAWS for either a Braille Lite or Braille Note for your Braille display: this way you will have a way of navigating to the master volume control in the program menu under entertainment, because I don't think there's a way of disabling it.

Is anyone using the logitech wireless keyboards? Along the top, as with most wireless keyboards, there are a number of "multimedia" buttons also called "quick launch" buttons that are programmed to launch things like Internet Explorer, Outlook Express and so on with a single keypress.

On the logitech, there is a "mute" button to the left of the Volume+- buttons. I've accidently pressed it a few times since getting this keyboard and spent hours trying to figure out what caused my spanking new laptop to suddenly lose speech. This key checks and unchecks the master mute checkbox in the windows volume applet. Thanks for the gray hairs Microsoft!


Question: How can I program these keys, or disable them? I can't find any software that seems to be controlling this special keyboard input.

Jeremiah 29:11 - 14 A   .
11 For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 In those days when you pray, I will listen. 13 If you look for me in earnest, you will find me when you seek me. 14 I will be found by you," says the Lord.
