I'm looking to source a wireless numpad and keyboard (or something better) for 
a student who uses JAWS. She is doing a postgraduate diploma in law which 
focuses largely on practice. She wants to be able to work at a distance from 
her laptop, as she will be involved in interviewing and presentations. She 
would like to be able to review prepared materials whilst working in this mode.

Numpad: I was thinking that a single document could be navigated by Numpad and 
so a document of prepared notes could be managed in this way. Does anyone know 
of a good wireless NumPad for JAWS users. Must have INS key and allow keystroke 

Keyboard: Does anyone know of a good wireless keyboard for JAWS users. Should 
have Function keys available without need to use Fn switch.

Anyone know of anything better?
