Re: NVDA and desktop keyboards without Home and End keys
I picked up one of the K780 keyboards yesterday. I can report that this keyboard works very well with NVDA. The key sequences needed to produce Home, End, Page Up and Page down are very simple and not cumbersome at all. The PDF file Bryan mentioned is, unfortunately, not screen reader friendly. The 4 aforementioned keystrokes are produced by pressing the FN key and pressing the left arrow for Home, right arrow for end, up arrow for Page up and down arrow for page down. The use of control and shift modifier keys work as expected to give all the usual functions of these keys.
A software utility called Options (available from logitech) is
needed to finish out the needed tweaks. This utility is used to
reverse the function key row behavior back to it's normal mode,
where no FN keypress is needed to perform the usual windows
functions. The only other thing i changed was to disable the
scroll lock key, which is mapped to control + caps lock (i'm sure
you can see the problem here). With the funciton key row reverted
to normal, you will have to use the FN key to switch between the
three paired devices, and any other function keys that are
described as not needing the FN key. This is a relatively minor
The keyboard paired with my Samsung Note 4 and works beautifully.
All in all, this compact, very solid feeling and quiet keyboard
is a keeper. It's an excellent choice for anyone wanting one
keyboard for all of their devices, except for devices running
Windows Phone OS.
