You've probably done this but you should check that NVDA is configured for laptop layout in the Keyboard Settings dialogue. This layout will give you the capslock page up/down keys as well as others which do not require use of the numpad.

Hi Paul,
Sincere thanks for this, it works fine on my HP laptop. Is my Linovo laptop
out of line then? As it needs the capslock+fn+overlaid 7 to brin on the
screen reviewand capslock+fn+1 to switch to object review.
I have used these to read things that Jaws cursor failed on in windows8. I
no longer use Jaws on my Linovo with windows8.
Kind regards
Aedan.

Hi Aedan,

If you just want to turn on screen review mode with the keyboard set to
laptop configuration, you can press capslock plus page up, assuming that
you have set capslock as an NVDA key.  Capslock page down reduces the
scope of the review mode.

Hi all,
I use NVDA on a Limovo laptop with no problem but on my HP laptop at a
holiday location I cannot get the review mode. The Function button is
overlaying the numpad as it should but the keys capslock+ fn+7 do not
switch
on the Screen review on numpad 7 as it should.
Any thoughts appreciated.
Aedan.
