Hi Cy and Stacy. Hmm I didn't know you could get laptops that had a num pad
feature that's great! But you see I have got a laptop and it doesn't has a
numpad on it. So is there a way to use it like a numpad but with other keys
such as the letters with a command or something like that? Comments and
sergestions are welcom from you both and of course everybody else! I don't
want to buy a new one because I use this one for my university it has a full
copy of Jaws on it. Where as my main computer only runs in 40 minute demo

Best Wishes

Hi Cy,
I wasn't aware that you can by laptops with numpads.
My next laptop will have one as well.

Have a blessed day,

  Tell you what, I use a wireless keyboard with my current laptop because I
do not like to bother with memorizing the various work around key
combinations required for the laptop. My next laptop *will* have a full
keyboard complete with numpad.

  The cost of a laptop with a numpad is very little more than a regular old
laptop without the numpad so why not get what you want.

  Subject: Laptop Question for Jaws

  Hello everyone, how are you? I have a question reguarding using a Laptop
with Jaws. Basically with Jaws on a main desktop computer, I use the num Pad
to type in numbers. But I was cureious weather this can be done on a Laptop.
I have heard of a key called the "FM" Key on a laptop and on one of my other
list that I am subscribe to somebody said using a key with the "FN" Key and
hitting one of the keys like L, K and  J. I'm not up on the laptop commands
and would basicly like to know if there is a way to simulate the num pad on
a laptop like using a Desktop I do use the numbers above the letters but
find it some what fustrating at times when I hit a wrong letter. I'm just
cureious. Oh and one more thing, could someone tell me where I can find the
FM Key? I am totally Blind and telling me to look for a coulor would be
pointless. lol Have a good day! but hear its coming to an end. lol
