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 mode. 

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.

  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
