[macvoiceover] Re: keyboards

Well Mary,

First of all, my Mac Book Pro keyboard doesn't appear to have they key you're 
talking about.  You see, My unit has no built in Number keypad; so, I have a 
USB driven number keypad which I sometimes use or not depending on how I feel 
at the moment.  On my keyboard, there's only one control key; on the left side. 
 That makes it a little annoying to use key strokes like control+VO+t for 
moving from table to table or the shift versions of those keys.  What I do for 
now is just cross my right hand under my left and press the control key with my 
right index finger.  Sure, I could, if I really wanted to, use a USB full 
keyboard, but, I'm not 
 to do that.
I do hope you'll like your Mac when you get it.  I know I had to go through 
quite a learning curve but I love mine.  I haven't obtained the level of 
proficiency that some others here have, but, I do believe I made the right 
decision to switch.


Sincerely,
The Constantly Barefooted Ray!!!
