My greeting Alex,

I think there are many keyboards with rollover, some of them may  be very cheap 
as they are not True n-rollover keyboards but still can handle the six and even 
eight keys of braille very well.  my keyboard was really cheap and is made in 
china. its brand is called "extreme". i do not know if you would find it in 
your country or not.

In any case here is some websites to help you, the first is a website to 
download a testing program and the second website contains a list of high-end 
keyboards that do have n-rollover feature:

Also did you tried other six-key combinations, in another row, as my laptop has 
exactly the same problem and was only able to handle four keys of SDF JKL but 
when i tried pressing YTR UIO it handled all the six keys well. i know the 
position of this keys will not be as comfortable as the original keys but they 
provide a fast solution. 

About the price of the program, it is $40 for one copy and $66 for two copies.  
there is a full information about the price on the Program's website:

hope i have give you all the info you wanted.

hope you the best.

correctly, even an "er" sign, but I cannot get a p to come out.  
It keeps turning into an s.  Now, suddenly, these keys are not 
working again and often only 2 will work at a time.  How easy is 
it to find a keyboard with the rollover this program needs, and 
how much will it cost? Again, how much is the actual program? 

Have a great day,

>Hi Alex,

at the same time, try this more than once and see if all the sex 
letters appear in each time or not.

"Define SBK keys".  you can get to it from the settings button.  
this option allows you to defin any other six keys for braille 
writing.  you will first try to find other six keys that can work 
simultaneously.  to do so open notepad again and try pressing any 
six keys in the first row, then in the second and the third row 
untill you see that all six keys were displayed.

>for my laptop the working keys were (YTR UIO), you may consider 
trying them.
