Re: JFW 6.01 Problems On A New Sony Laptop

Hi Katrina, I also use a laptop. I am using a Dell laptop. My laptop has what is called a function key. Not to be confused with the f function keys. I can use this function key in combination with a letter key to do jaws commands. For example function key plus the p key will get me the jaws cursor. I'm not sure if all laptops have this function key. My instert key is located in a good place so I can have my keyboard layout set to desktop. You might not need an external numpad.

Hi Crystal,

Really?  So, what did you do?  Did you get another numb pad, or simply not
use a numb pad?

I do have a Targus numb pad with the 00 key, etc. and wondered if it might
be the problem.

Thanks,
Katrina

Hi,
I am not sure if this would have anything to do with your problem or not,
but did the keypad come with the laptop, or did you purchase it separately?


I recently purchased an IBM notebook.

Since I like the desktop Jaws configuration on a laptop, I also bought a
keypad.  This one was a Targus brand.

I didn't realize until I tried to use it that numeric keypads have changed.
Not all of them, I'm sure, but this one had a "000" key, and the Enter key
also had an equals added to it.


Jaws 6 was not happy with this arrangement. Some commands worked, but some
didn't.


It might, at least, be worth checking, if you can have someone sighted look
at your keypad.


Crystal
